Afi - Fainting Spells tab

Title: Fainting Spells
Artist: AFI
Album: Crash Love (Deluxe Edition), from DU Recording Sessions (2006)

Tabbed by Hazel (lezahtherock). Email: latetoo00@hotmail.com

DISCLAIMER: I submitted a version of this tab before I created
an account and it can be found here:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/a/afi/fainting_spells_tab.htm.
This version is an EDITED one, so moderators can feel free to 
delete the other one! I put my name as lezah in the other one
because I posted the tab on the AFI message board originally,
and my board name there is lezah. Just to avoid any confusion.

Tuning: Half step down.
