Story Of The Year - Tell Me tab

This is my favorite song from the new album. SOTY is a great band from my good ol 
of STL. Ive been goin to see them for the last 10 years now  since they were Big Blue Monkey.

I kinda worked all this out after jammin with the song and realizing the other tabs were 
and not totally right.  Most of this sounds right to me, feel free to correct and 
any ideas you have.

Tune down 1/2 step and then drop D
Db AB Db Gb Bb Eb

Enjoy!

I said, correct it if you have any better ideas.  Thanks!
