Be on the lookout I'm sure my band will post a cover of this
song relatively soon.


Notes*:
  -The verses in this are very "riff-heavy" rather than
a simple chord progression

  -Where I put the name of the chord name in the verse is 
where beat 1 is, it doesn't necessarily mean you play the chord
but hey play the song however you want if it works for ya.
these tabs are just a reference and the song itself is open
for interpretation.

  -If you see a slash ( Chord\ ) after a chord name it usually just
means hold. I'm trying to say the dynamics are softer after that 
beat

  -If you see an X that just means I mute myself there and make
the least amount of noise possible. Sometimes i'll just hit my 
muted strings real hard on the down beat, but DON'T let anything
ring out.

  -In the TAB the little b's mean VERY slight bends and the big B's
mean bend to the next note. With little b's you really don't even have
to do them if you either can't or just don't them. VERY few people will
notice.

  -All the chords on the chorus switch on beat 1 EXCEPT for 
the A(Diminished) you switch to that last chord on beat 3

 /----------------------------------------------------------\
|  -All the "Riffs" and other melodies and counter-melodies  |
|can be found at the end (the bottom) of the tab.            |
 \----------------------------------------------------------/

  -This is my first time using a Mac when I submit a tab and
when you do the submission it's not in Courier New (Font that
is perfect for tabs) so I copied and paste this from a google document
with Courier New. PLEASE let me know if the format is messed up in any way

  -All the B5's can totally be Bm's if you want to put a full triad in the chord
In the recording there's actually no chords being played just the riff under the 
verses, pre-choruses, and the bridge
