This is an easy to play but beautiful moving song. If you can't play the fast
hammer-ons/pull-offs just go with the chords, it still sounds great!

Stone Sour usually play half step down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) tuned guitars.
This is a transcription to standard tuning. 

Theres lots of half accurate tabs for this song already but I wasn't satisfied 
so I had to put up my acoustic version.

I did not add any solo, the original solo is just some D# minor pentatonic
stuff. Be creative ;)


Just listen to the song for the strumming/chord voicing.
