Long tab! I recommend that you grab someone that plays the guitar 
(preferably TWO guitarists!) It would sound much better.  Emery rocks!

Comments about this tab

How is the tab?


Handsome - 2005-03-16

This tab seems very accurate... I figured this one out by ear, and could never get the verse part quite right for the second guitar... This must have took some time to write! Good job.
