right yet. enjoy and please rate and post you comments. if you have any
arguments about it, i have the dvd of live in san diego and this is how jon,
(the lead singer) plays it. i would trust him, wouldn't you?

could somebody explain this in more detail im new to this and id like to play more of this stuff but the first part of the verse sounds weird to me i dunno e-mail me at freak_show91@yahoo.com thanks.

Tab is read like you're looking at the fret board.
The strings Are:
Highest e
B
G
D
A
Lowest E
The dashes ( - ) mean don't play. The numbers stand for the fret on which you play. Numbers side by side are played together.
Tab Symbols:
H= hammer-on/off (there's another symbol I can't make on the keyboard)
\= slide (up or down depending)
hope it helps
