Awesome tab, man. Great work and God bless!


~FreT~ - 2006-09-11

First of all, I don't think I'm hearing a changing bass note in the intro (B, C#, D, E, and D). It sounds like B and then A. Then in the verse, doesn't it go B, A, B, A, G, D, A, B? Then in the second verse, there is picking instead of just chords. I don't know what it is. Then in the bridge, what I'm hearing is this:
E|-------------------------------------------------------10-10-12-12-12-12-|
A|--------------------------10-10-12-12-10-10-12-12-(x2)-10-10-------10-10-|
G|-9-11-11-9-9-11-11-9*-(x2)-----------------------------------------------|

E|-12-12-(x2)-10-10-10-10-9-9-9-9------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------12-12-12-12-10-10-10-10-10-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------|
A|-9-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-|
G|---------------------------------------------------|

*-first time only

And there must be a second guitar playing F# in the first 3/4s and E in the last quarter with all the 8s and 9s.

Now Matt is playing the electric guitar too...

Sorry. This should be better.

Yeah Fret, the bass part in the intro goes like this:

A--22222222222-0-22222- A--55555555555-0-5555 xhowever many times that loops in the intro. Yeah. But we're talking about guitar, so I perhaps I shoudln't have pointed that out. ;)
