lynzer - 2007-08-31

my favorite band ever! i'm going to try this. btw, its Jessy Ribordy how it's spelled. just thot i'd let ya know :)


Cheese_Monkey - 2007-09-01

oops that was my bad on the spelling there, b is right below the h :P i hate my fat fingers!


Love_Addict - 2008-02-08

Thanks Much! one thing, I listened carefully to the song and the 8 9 8 9 7 7 10 7 in the first line I think is the same rhythm as the beginning of that line, but every time you hear it in the song it's overlapped by powerchords so it doesn't really matter.

God Bless You


demonhuntress - 2008-02-20

Thanks, dude.


brooks23 - 2008-02-21

when the tab say 7 7 7 7 10 10 10 10 repeat then 10 10 10 10 7 7 7 7
7 7 7 7 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 7 7 7 7
7 7 7 7 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 7 7 7 7
When in the song are to play that ,like where is by listning to the lyrics


nick_treiberg - 2008-03-05

This is an awesome tab! The only thing I play differently is I make the verse for the lead guitar into power chords, and I don't play the

E|-----------|
B|-----------|
G|-2---0h2p0-|
D|-----------|
A|-----------|
D|-----------|

at the very end of that line. (it kinda interferes with the chorus for the lead guitar)

Anyway, a great tab! Good job and Thanks!
