Tabbed by: Radar

Tuning: Standard


Okay, I've read the other tabs, and one seemed pretty accurate, but I noticed a few
and thought I'd correct them. There were also a few parts that I felt were missing.

Also, I chopped a lot of the riffs into easy-to-chew segments that I believe will be
to learn. Another thing is that this is how I play the song, and I have my own picking
and preferences, so don't take every single chord or note to heart as being part of the 
this is just to give you the main idea of the song.

Intro-
Acoustic or Clean

Note: The last two chords are quick and sort of quiet, but they're there. Also, the
finger notes are pretty much optional, but they give the intro its' signature texture.

Verse (I'm not sure exactly where the pull offs are or how they're done here, so this is basic template of the verse riff, try to figure out the hammer ons/pull offs yourself you like. And yes, you must use your pinky heavily for this one.)

Chorus (Pretty much the same as the acoustic/clean intro part, except there are no muted I'm not sure if you include the middle finger note this time)

Solo (Yippee, the fun part. Anyways, the sections are seperated for each guitar since are two guitars playing it, but not at the same time. You can play it on one guitar, but actual version has two guitars trading off parts) Guitar 1
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|G|--------------4h6p4---4-7b-7-6-4h6p4-----------------------------|D|--------2-4/6-------6----------------7---------------------------|A|----2-4--------------------------------7-------------------------|E|--4--------------------------------------7-5-4-------------------|
Guitar 2

Guitar 1 (Note: I like to do the final bend on the 21rst fret of the high E string, it's preference, and I know it's not correct, but I believe it sounds better, the correct is to bend on 19th fret of the B string)
e|--------------------------------19-21b-------------------------------|B|-----17----19b-19-17h19p17----19b------------------------------------|G|--18----18-----------------18----------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
Guitar 2 (Note: It's extremely important that you hold the bend here and strike the High string note while holding the bend and then release the bend when you play the final notes)
e|-----------------------7-------------------------------------------|B|-------------------------------------------------------------------|G|----------4h6p4---4-6b---6-4---------------------------------------|D|--4-5-6-7-------6--------------------------------------------------|A|-------------------------------------------------------------------|E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
Both guitars play this next part at exactly the same time. And when you bend on the 18th just like with guitar 2's part, you hold it for the next note then release it.

Okay, there's a harmony for this next part. I'll write them up seperatly. Guitar 1

They add this to the end of it after this time (Although I'm not sure about the lead the final time through)
e|--------------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------------------|G|--2---6---9---------------------------------------|D|--2---6---9---------------------------------------| x4A|--0-0-4-0-7---------------------------------------|E|--------------------------------------------------|
I know that you repeat the intro with distortion and that there's this whole other part it repeats the first lead and adds on multiple harmonies, but I haven't gotten around to that yet, and it might be awhile until I'm motivated to do it. When I do, I'll tab it as solo | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ===============================================================================
