============================================================================= b = bend r = release p = pull-off h = hammer-on / = slide up \ = slide down This song is a lot easier to play detuned, so If you decide you want to play it with the drop D tuning, all you have to do is take all the notes on the E(D) string, and move them up two frets. I hope you enjoy my interpretation of this song. =============================================================================
