Twice There's a lead bit throughout the chorus, but I can't work it out... Any ideas? For the verse, do the intro with another guitar mirroring on the low C with palm-muting. Pre-Chorus

Play this twice through, but swap the fourth part for the second of the two following lines. And for the second time through, miss the 3rd and 4th parts altogether and play:

The (8) here is very hard to play and get into a comfortable fingering for the next 13, I don't play it.

Order of play: Fade Intro Intro Clean bit Chorus Intro Verse Pre-Chorus Intro (Clean) Chorus Intro Verse Pre-Chorus Chorus (x3) Breakdown Interlude Solo Intro (With palm muted chords) Chorus x4 End. I know it's not perfect, and some of the stretches are impossible standing up, but this how i play it... I put the tab as intermediate, because mostly it's not too hard! Any corrections? (Specifically for the Breakdown and/or Solo) Don't hesitate to give a sugggestion! Thanks for checking out my tab.
