Ganner - 2004-07-01

bbcome2 - 2004-07-02

what is a dead note?


bbcome2 - 2004-07-02

Never mind my last comment


bc2skaterpunk - 2004-07-30

dude this tab rocks, u da man!!


crowned1 - 2004-08-11

Very Impressive! However, there's just a couple things in the intro, I might differ on. In the 3rd segment, the last Db shouldn't be there (leaving only six Db's in the segment instead of 7) And in the 4th segment, the last note should be a 10, not a 13 (F not an Ab). I think it sounds right, but feel free to correct me back if it doesn't.=)


Xpunkrockr - 2004-09-13

Dude, that rocked you hit everything perfect!!!


guitarsticks22 - 2004-11-21

i dunno if it is right to u... but i think it sounds awesome... oh yah very nice tab bro


jesuslova - 2005-01-13

it's easier to finish the intro like this

e------------------------------------
B-----------4-6-4-6-4-----6-9-6-7-6--
G---------66-6-6-6-6-6--66-6-6-6-6---
D------------------------------------
A------------------------------------
E------------------------------------

as opposed to doin it all high up and stuff


sumboringperson - 2005-01-17

uh, there is one error that is pretty easy to miss, but on the "experience the bittersweet" part right before the chorus the chords are

----------------
----------------
--6--5----------
--6--6--4-------
--4--3--4-------
--------2-------

it may not sound right at first, but if you listen to the song, thats what it is


sumboringperson - 2005-01-17

whoa, i wasnt paying attention

like this:

----------------
----------------
--6--5----------
--6--5--4-------
--4--3--4-------
--------2-------

sorry about that


matt_pom - 2005-01-28

this is how i play the intro

G|66-6-8-6-8-6--66-6-5-6-5-6--88-8-10-8-10-8--1010-10-13-10-13-10|
** ** ** * *
and for those of you who dont know * means Palm mute
anywayz this is just a suggestion, i dont kno if its right but its pretty close


matt_pom - 2005-01-28

sorry about that

G|66-6-8-6-8-6--66-6-5-6-5-6--88-8-10-8-10-8--1010-10-13-10-13-10|
|-**------------**------------**--------------*-*----------------|

i dunno wat happens there


sportsboi - 2005-11-08

well done...however on the bridge it goes...

g-10----10-13-10-10---10-13-10
d----11------------11---------

and so on...in the chorus the part that u have is rite but if u listen closely it goes like this when it goes in with the power chords:
e----------------------------------------
b-----6-7-6-----6-7-6-----6-7-6-----7-7-6
g---6---------6---------6---------6------
d-------------------------------4--------
a-4--------------------------------------
e-----------4---------6------------------

hard to pick up but rite...have fun with this one =) 4 out of 5 good job


azn.one.73 - 2006-09-09

nothing big, intro gtr 2 part. you put the chords as 668, 446 and 668 when it should be 688 466 688

prolly just weren't payin attention. i do that a lot

stil 5 stars nice tab


avacar182 - 2007-01-10
