Drop D Tuning - DADGBE
Tabbed By Jonathan Mack


To Be Honest I Think The Song Is Played In Standard Tuning.
However, I've Tabbed It Out In Drop D.It Really Doesnt Make
Any Difference Either Way.Except,During The Verses (Mainly The First)
There Is Only The Bass Line Playing - So If You Want To
Play It On Guitar, It Has To Be Played In Drop D!

Rhythm Guitar - Played Slightly Distorted
Lead Guitar   - Played Clean
Guitar Three  - Played Slightly Distorted
Bass          - Played Clean / No Treble
