This song isn't very difficult, but the main arpeggio is a bit fast.  Just play with it 
you get the rhythm down.

Alternate picking is pretty essential if you want to play it smoothly.

Tuning (low to high): Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb (drop D, half step down)


Main riff:
(acoustic guitar, layered with clean electric with barely any distortion.)

Chorus:
(Acoustic strummed, with some tremelo chords for texture - ignore them.)
(Note: the chords are just Db and Eb.  Play them however you like.  This is what I play.)

And then, you play the second chorus again.

That's it.

Not too difficult, right?
