Tuning: Drop C# In order to get this, you need to tune the entire guitar down
 step (low to high: D#, G#, C#, F#, A#, D#) then tune the low "E" string down
a further whole step to C# (low to high: C#, G#, C#, F#, A#, D#) 

I have played this song in several bands and I'm 99.8% sure this tab is exact.

Intro: Is the main riff as shown below. Gtr 1 plays through twice then gtr 2
comes in both play together twice through.
