Tuning:EBGDAE

I'm not really sure how this song goes but here is a rough draft and I will update this
as I find out parts throught the song. The tuning is actually in C tuning but my guitar
can't handle it that low so if you can do it just apply what you know here but lower(or
something). Lets just do it this way to be safe and sure...

 /  slide up
 \  slide down
 h  hammer-on
 p  pull-off
 ~  vibrato
 +  harmonic
 pm Mute note
 x  Pick without sound
Note:This has delay and a weird guitar effect with no bass and low treble and high mids
(I think). Don't hate me if it is wrong...

Intro:(Echoes about seven or eight times after being picked)

(Part where the base comes in,0:43)(Do whatever picking style fits you. This
is mine. The notes with a * after them in this case means don't let it ring)

This is basically it through the song until after the second chorus. Here is
that part. Listin fot the picking pattern) (Slide the last time to whatever
sounds good to you...) (The last chord was hard to listin for so this is
close enough for now)

Then really fast again and the last not is done by hitting the string with your
tip of your finger and with the pick at the same time creating a natural harmonic
and this delays for 4 times...
