Secrets - Ass Back Home tab

Awesome song from Punk Goes Pop Vol.5

I'm aware there's two guitars, but because the second guitar is either too
quiet to be able to hear and tab properly, or just isn't played that much,
I've moulded both into one tab.

About halfway through writing this I realised the tab MIGHT actually be
in drop A# tuning, not C. I've highlighted why in that part of the tab.
But it works out fine in drop C and it's much easier to tune into C than A#!

Tab for drop C Tuning

  H - harmonic
  \ - slide down
  / - slide up
  ~ - let note ring
  x - mute note
  * - palm mute

Intro:

Quiet riff..
(This is played in the background a lot throughout the song-
if you hear it- play it, I just haven't tabbed it beyond here)

 ~~ The 10's here sound like the song should be zeroes in drop A# tuning ~~
 ~~     To keep in with drop C they're 10's so that they're still the    ~~
 ~~             same chord (A#, F, A#) just an octave higher             ~~
