Notes: 

There are a lot of tabs for this song, and it seemed like
no matter which version I played, it never sounded quite 
right. I decided to have a go at tabbing this myself, and
I feel like my version is the more accurate of all.

For example, there are obviously ONLY POWERCHORDS played
throughout the song, I found that playing them gave the 
song a "darker" sound and feel to it, which fits better 
with the song, IMO. Also, whenever I listened to the song, 
it never sounded to me like open chords were being played at all. 
I think powerchords are more acceptable.

Also, using powerchords would make more sense, as the
b and high e strings are played open during the verse.
This is so obvious for one to detect, I can't believe
that nobody was able to tab it correctly.

Finally, the tabs for the bridge that I have seen have been incorrect;
not utilizing the chords that the notes are based around, etc.
I feel like the bridge that I have tabbed is close to, if not 100%.

ENJOY!
