Tune guitar to EAEEBe   (tune G-string DOWN to E, not UP to E)
This is about 95% correct. There are a few things during the chorus 
that Iím not sure if I made up, or just guessed, but itís almost 
perfect.  Beautiful song, and fun to play.  Enjoy!

This is one of the most powerful songs out today. I love that you took the time to figure it out.......just one thing, though.

The end of the intro and the end of the song go like this

other than that, I give it 5 stars!

Try using a slide at the end of the first measure of the intro. i sounds much better.

A/C# B/D# A
e -----------------------------------------
B ----------0---------0-----------------0--
E --------0---------0----------------------
E ------5---------7------------7/9--7------
A ----4---------6------------0--------------
E ------------------------------------------ 3X, then

And at the end of the intro try using this hammer-on. It's much easier to get to.
