Tabbed by: Chris Yount

Standard Tuning (E A D G B E)
Slide = /

I feel like this is pretty accurate. At least, it's the best-sounding way
that I can find to play it.
Throughout the entire song, you pretty much strum the chords. 
The only exception to this rule is during the bridge, where the last two 
chords are just played once.

Whoops. Forgot to mention that the:

-------------6--
----------------
--6-7--6-7------

part is really using hammer ons on the E sting. So it's this:


-------------6--
----------------
--6h7--6h7------

Dude yes your correction makes it a 100% correct..awesome tab


KingJaymz - 2005-01-20

Thanks! Sorry about that. I can't believe I forgot it while tabbing.


njsk8rboy - 2005-01-29

very good


DyingAlive - 2005-06-26

*cough* Actually, while playing the song I found it sounds better if it's played like so:

d|------8-----8--7-----8-----8--7-----8--7-|
a|-----------------------------------------|
E|---6-----6--------6-----6--------6-------|

But the way it sounds, I think he's using an alternate tuning... Thanks for the tab, It's great!

Has anyone tried this song in drop D.


tabber - 2006-08-15

good job sounds great but i think theend of the bridge is:
G-6-9/8-6/4-4/2
D-6-9/8-6/4-4/2
A-4-7/6-4/2-2/0
E-4-7/6-4/2-2/0

its sounds like it switches on the second note othere wise it sounds good


tabber - 2006-08-15

whoops that was a major screw up my bad after listening it to it i think i could be wrong though that its:
G-6-9/8-6-3
D-6-9/8-6-3
A-4-7/6-4-0
E-4-7/6-4--
