This song isn't very difficult, but the main arpeggio is a bit fast.  Just play with it 
you get the rhythm down.

Alternate picking is pretty essential if you want to play it smoothly.

Tuning (low to high): Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb (drop D, half step down)


Main riff:
(acoustic guitar, layered with clean electric with barely any distortion.)

|-------------------------------------------------------------------||----------0-------------------------------0---------------0--------||------4-----4---------4-----4---------4-----4---------4-----4------||----4---4-----4-----4-----4-----0---4---4-----4-----4---4-----4----||--2-------------0-------------0---------------------------------0--||------------------4-----0---------2-------------2------------------|
Chorus: (Acoustic strummed, with some tremelo chords for texture - ignore them.) (Note: the chords are just Db and Eb. Play them however you like. This is what I play.)
|--0----------0----------||--0----------0----------||--7----------9----------||--7-(strum)--9-(strum)--||--5----------7----------||--X----------X----------|
(The main riff comes in once before the second verse) Second Verse: (same root chords as the main riff, only with palm-muted power chords.)
First Time:|-----------------------------------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------------------------------||--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4------------------------------------------------||--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2X--0-2-2-2-2--||--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2X--0-2-2-2-2--||------------------4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2x--0-2-2-2-2--|
Other Times:|-----------------------------------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------------------------------||--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4------------------------------------------------||--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2X--0-2-0------||--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2x--0-2-0------||------------------4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2X--0-2-0------|
Second Chorus: (Electric, full distortion, same chords as first chorus)
|------------------------||------------------------||--7---------------------||--7-(strum)--2----------||--5----------2-(strum)--||--5----------2----------|
Bridge: (Acoustic, strummed) (These aren't the actual chords Sean plays, but the corresponding power chords.)
|---------------------------------------------------------||---------------------------------------------------------||--4----------2-------------------------------------------||--4-(strum)--2-(strum)--5----------2----------4----------||--2----------0----------5-(strum)--2-(strum)--4-(strum)--||------------------------5----------2----------4----------|
And then, you play the second chorus again. That's it. Not too difficult, right?
