Tuning A E A D F# B 

Notes: This is just how I play it, my own interpretation so dont 
expect it to be 100% accurate :) 
Listen to CD for timing (tab spacing is often impreicse) 
Now, a few notes. Firstly, Its probable ive overlistened some parts. 
Intro sounds best played downpicking (its possible.)
