Tuning: EADGBE (Standard)


There are some quality tabs for this song here, but I found a lot of
critical mistakes so I spent some time with it making sure to get every
note in as it should be.  I've noticed a few errors in the chord progressions
and also the layered and more complex sounding parts are often kind of
skimmed over.  I tabbed it out so that everything can be done on one guitar.
I didn't look at the others until after I tabbed it out and while there are
similarities, I've taken the time to create a tab for the person who wants
to play the song as faithfully as possible to the sound on the album.

Questions, comments, criticisms...email me or leave a message.
