Alan Parsons - So Far Away tab

Ed, the lead singer + guitarist in Crossfade plays in Drop B (Drop D, 1.5 steps down)

NOTE!: This Tab is far from perfect, but its a great starting point

NOTE!: For the sake of easier reading of my tab, I will include measures in the tab (for 
of you who don't know what that does, each box in the tab[ie |----| ] is worth 4 beats)
