                Tuning:Standard

EDIT: 
> This is a tab in standard tuning, so a bit easier than having to go to drop-d.
> Had a fiddle around with an easier picking pattern, doesn't require the palm mutes. 


Really love this song and saw that there wasn't a tab floating about so thought I'd give it a go. 
My first time at writing a tab, so any help/comments would be greatly appreciated. 

This tab is mainly based upon this acoustic version:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nj22HvDRFiM , 
but i threw in the intro from the album version for good measure.

If you have a fiddle around you can adapt this tab to the album version.
