Believe it or not, this is my first tab. Helpful comments are appreciated. I pretty much know this song forwards and backwards. I've been wanting to put this tab out for awhile now because I haven't seen a good version of this song tabbed in standard tuning. And I know how much it sucks retuning the guitar, so now you don't have to :-)
