Yellowcard - When We're Old Men

I'm not too sure if this is a regional extra on some Lights and Sounds CDS but you can
it on iTunes as I did. I'm pretty sure that all of the tab with the exception of Part 4
100%. The chords played sound different each time I listen so I just went for a basic 
which you can change if you find something you think sounds better. Entirely up to
guitarist!

I'll put the sections and then type the order in which they go.

Enjoy! =)

Part 3 - Bridge

Violins play in the background here but I didn't bother to tab them for

guitar, again entirely optional if you want a second guitarist to play

the notes the violin does.

a----2-2-----2-------2-2-----2-----------------------------------|
e----------------------------------------------------------------|

Part 4 - Outro

It's basically alternate picking of the E5, D5, C#5, B5 and A5 chords

with the e and b strings also strummed from what I can tell (Don't trust

me for the names of the chords by the way)
The way I've played the D5 here (x59700) is just the way I like to play

that chord, it can just as easily be replaced by (x57700)
You'll get the hang of it the more you play it, I'm not 100% sure about

this part yet so any comments would be appreciated.

This tab is really great. The only slight change I would suggest is while playing it, at the start of the bridge you have the 4th and 2nd frets high e each followed by an open b pluck. I've noticed it seems to sound alot better when playing the 4th fret on the G instead. Also, you're in better position for the chords to follow as well. I think it may be right. Let me know what you think!
