Rise Against - The Strength To Go On tab version 1

One of the best songs on the new album. Haven't seen a tab for it yet so I thought I'd
tab it myself. My first tab by the way... I know it's not perfect but it sounds ok. I believe
there is a third guitar on the last chorus but I didn't tab that part. so enjoy and pls comment.
