Legend
------

 h  = hammer-on
 p  = pull-off
 ^  = bend (number of semi-tones above)
 /  = slide up/down
 ~  = vibrato
 w  = with whammy bar (number of semi-tones above)
 <> = Natural harmonic

Note: Most of this song's transcription is based on the midi by Mark Degarmo Chung.
      As a result many parts may be played differently or in different positions. 
      I have just put it into tablature and in the way I play it. This tab is not
      perfect. The solos and acoustic parts are pretty damn close but some verse 
      parts may be a bit off. Enjoy.
