I found the other tab hard to read so I decided to put up my
own tab. This is also in drop c# which is how HN plays all
of their songs and the other tab isn't. I also added the solo thing
at the end.

*=let ring
h=hammer
p=pull off

Duing the "same sex marriage" part, just play the same as "take a good look"

Then play "do they even know" again.
Then play the chorus again.

Pretty good. :)

I actually need to make a correction to my tab.
The whole interlude should be:

That probably sounds better and if the part for the second verse doesnt sound good, could someone give me some input cause its really hard to hear.


jkim519 - 2006-08-19

C# is the same as Db


hwknlsn09876543 - 2006-08-22

Whenever I submit a tab, the lines don't match up and I have to do weird things to make it look good, like add spaces or take away lines, then whenever I see the final version, the lines don't match up BECAUSE I added those things in. Help?


rockNforchrist - 2006-08-24

On the page where you type your tab it should all line up but if it doesn't try submitting it without messing with it and maybe it'll come out right. Just make sure there is the same amount of characters on each line. Also I think each line holds like 80 characters so try not to go over.


rockNforchrist - 2006-09-18

I know my tabs not near perfect so I'm still making corrections.

The second verse sounds better like this:

Eb------------------------------------------
Bb------------------------------------------
Gb--------4---------2---------4----------2--
Db----2h4-4--4p22h4-2-----2h4-4--2p0h2p0-2--
Ab-4h5----2---------0--4h5----2----------0--
C#------------------------------------------

Then the second time it should be

Eb------------------------------------------
Bb------------------------------------------
Gb--------4---------2---------4-------------
Db----2h4-4--4p22h4-2-----2h4-4--2p0h2p0-5--
Ab-4h5----2---------0--4h5----2----------5--
C#---------------------------------------5--

And the part right before the chorus (do they even know)
I think is:

Eb-------------------------------xx--
Bb-------------------------------xx--
Gb-7--7---7-------7--7-----------xx--
Db-7--7---7--5----7--7---4--5----xx--
Ab-5--4---5--5----5--4---4--4----xx--
C#-----------5-----------4--5----xx--

Oh and that's w/o distortion.

Let me know what ya'll think.
