This is probably my favorite song ever, so I decided to make a tab that finally
has all the parts right, with the right tuning. So here is the perfect tab in its
completion.
I have a powertab version of this song too... if you would like it...
email me at bballnutsmitty@yahoo.com

All parts are by guitar one unless otherwise noted.

It may be easier to play with a capo on the first fret.

Comments about this tab

akaukal - 2006-06-28

Correct tuning of this song is Drop Db or C#. You actually play an open Db chord in the chorus. This isn't right. 3


3rd Bassman - 2006-07-12

no its definately Eb...


akaukal - 2006-07-15

In the Intro/Chorus where you're going
e--------
b--------
g--------
D-x-1-4--
A-1-4-1--
D---1-4--

Try this and tell me what you think:
eb--------
bb--------
gb--------
Db---2----
Ab---2-0--
Db-0-2-0--


3rd Bassman - 2006-07-23

The Interval is definately a minor third... but i think you could be right about picking the root then the chord then the fifth and the root... but yeah... im pretty sure thats it...


akaukal - 2006-07-24

I don't know. I just know that what you're playing clashes way to much with the actual song. I think it sounds good, but I don't think it's what they're playing.
