                Hi guys, this is my first tab I've posted so I hope it gets accepted. Some other guy has
posted a guitar pro tab of this song which is correct as well. My version is simply
way of playing it, but in standard tuning (with bass string dropped to B). So I would 
it if no one has a go at me for no apparent reason okay, its only a guitar tab guys.
So yeah I hope this helps, took me about an hour to work it out.

PLEASE NOTE: The solo is not tabbed here so no one have a go at me for that either, it
my first tab remember.
