I think u got the chorus and the bridge mixed up but it don't matter really b/c the tab is 100% correct good work


johnnylvr10 - 2005-02-05

awesome job man


Takamine06 - 2005-02-26

what does ~ mean?


jt16935 - 2005-03-04

Hey Takamine06, That means bend.


Timberwolf - 2005-03-22

~=Hold Note


jesuslova - 2005-04-21

~ means hold/bend, like just play the note/chord for longer and (maybe if you feel like it), bend it out to make it sound good

hope you enjoy it

jkim519 - 2006-01-18

This is a hard song cuz i can't tell when to change chords :(


ilovguitar272 - 2006-02-03

great tab i love this song


Link13rock - 2006-03-14

I must say at first this tab really screwed me up, UNTIL I read what skid said about the chorus and bridge being mixed up, man was he right! thx for pointing that out dude, but this is a Great tab exept one thing that may possibly be off and that is the intro its got the right tuning right strings and everything and the right pattern BUT I think maybe they start at the 7th fret and use the same pattern, maybe I'm wrong, just a thought, sounds a lil more like the cd, anyway great tab man!


jakesnake - 2006-03-16

Crazy_4_Jesus - 2006-06-08
