Recorded By: Tom Cochrane
Covered By: Rascal Flatts
Tuning: Standard(EADGBe)

I Editted the main riff a little bit, and now I think it's spot on with the recording. 
first 3/4 of it are the same as I had it before, but in the 1/4 the strumming changes a 
and so I think I've got it now. Enjoy!

INTRO: It layers itself with three parts, rhythm, lead riff, and solo

Pt.1
(Other Gutiar slides on low E with distortion)
Weird fingering here, but this is how It's done in the video
(NOTE: These are 13's and 10's, not 3's and 1's etc.)
Rhythm: Continues in all 3 parts      on 4th time - drums come in

and I hope this tab is clear enough so you can get it perfect.
