Hey guys, this is an update on a tab I did years ago, its for the weight (the opener to 
editors' fourth album). I already tabbed the demo acoustic version of the song back when 
it was called "The weight of your love" but here's the album version

Opening riff

E|-/8-/7-/13-------/8-/7-/12------/8-/7-/13------/8-/7-/3--------------------|

Verse Riff

Rhythm Guitar

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------3---------0-----0--------0--------0----0--------------------------|
D|------0--0------0--0-----0-----0--0-----0--0----0--------------------------|

or alternatively play this
