This is so close to being perfect, it's such a sweet song and no one else
has tabbed it yet (or so i could find). There are little sections where I
couldn't hear the exact picking so I tried my best but it doesn't really
matter, he changes it up when they play live anyway. I hope all you middle
east fans enjoy!
