guitar that plays along with the lead, though you can still play it on a six string.

The chord progression, and chords are fairly simple]

fukin perfect mate,

only a few things missing (like tiny tiny guitar fills, usually just 1 note or chord here and there, but who the hell hears that stuff unless u concentrating on a song like i am sometimes, and whos gonna tab them and when playing live bands never do them things they add during recording/mixing anyway... ill stop talkin just going on about nothing here but great tab)
