First tab, this sounds awesome.. Hope this helps all the CnC fans out there.

There are not so many tabs available for this song that are actually correct. This is
more or less a guideline to play something similar to the live version, but it sounds
The strum pattern is fairly tricky to hook onto with all of the sliding necessary, so 
rate this as a little below intermediate guitar work. The tab below was taken and modified
another posted on U-G with an unreg'd user, but props to that person for doing most of 
work I would've had to. All told, the remaining parts of the tab are interpreted from the 
of the song itself as well as from watching the City and Colour live DVD.

TUNING: CGDGBe

How to:
Tune the low E two steps down to a C, IE: the 9th fret of the E string sounds like a
tuned A string.
Tune the A string down a single step so that the 7th fret of the a string sounds like 
D string.
