3 Doors Down - By My Side tab

  OK, this tab is pretty much 150% correct cause ive been playing it for a few years now 
know how it goes.  Have fun playing this song cause it rocks and I hope these tabs help 
play it right. (I've heard it played incorrectly soo many times)
  I split up guitar 1 and guitar 2's parts, so its easier for each to read and print... 
line up perfectly (ive listened to the song and read them at the same time for both)

                    GUITAR 1 TAB

Standard Tuning

B = full bend
b = half bend
h = hammer on
> = hold note for longer duration
. = palm mute
* = pinch harmonics (some amps need to be on full distortion)
p = pull off
~ = vibrato

                       GUITAR 1
