AUTHORS NOTES:
I felt that this song was just crying out to be tabbed, so here it is. See the end of the
page for the structure of the song to help if you need it. I have tried to set out the timing
as best I can, but listening to the song will obviously help. I am also unsure/cannot be
bothered to check that the 'guitar1' and 'guitar2' titles above the sections do actually
correspond to the correct guitar. Either way, they are both fairly accurate I think. This
whole tab was worked out by ear, I didn't copy it from anywhere. Obviously alot of the riffs
can be transposed to different places on the guitar, although I have found that the way it is
tabbed below is my personal preferance. Sometimes the other guitar will be playing something
already tabbed, so I haven't repeated it. It should be pretty obvious if you hear it.

 Enjoy and email me feedback at jonnykates@gmail.com!
