Ok, I decided to tab this song as well since the tab that is already found in
this site didn't convince me. The song is pretty good, of my personal favorites

correction is welcomed!

I haven't chekced the whole tab out, but I tried your intro riff, and I think it should be in octaves, like the other guy posted.
