Believe it or not, this is my first tab. Helpful comments are appreciated.
I pretty much know this song forwards and backwards. I've been wanting to
put this tab out for awhile now because I haven't seen a good version of
this song tabbed in standard tuning. And I know how much it sucks retuning
the guitar, so now you don't have to :-)
