NOTES: This CD is the best! If you don't have it, get it and thank me later.
This song is awesome, its in standard tunning. Durring the verses there is an-
other guitar playing the lead rift with guitar two, it does the same thing
but at then end of each mesure, he slides up the neck on the high "e" string
from the 5th fret, listen to the cd, you will hear it.

The is a good tab, the verse didn't really work for me, but that's not saying much. I'm pretty sure that the Em in the chorus is actually an E, it sounds a lot better. Thanx dude!

the intro seems like there is something wrong with it and the chorus doesn't sound right at all. good try though!
