Tabbed by: luckyshot60

None of the tabs on the site were quite accurate or were missing parts so I figured I’d
it all in one place.

There are three guitars in the song: Guitar 1 is playing the rhythm part tabbed out,
2 is the lead guitar, and Guitar 3 is playing chords. I didn’t specifically put “Guitar 3”
but the chords it is playing are above Guitar 1’s parts.

Credit to K!!LsWITCH’s Guitar Pro tab for helping out some with the lead guitar. The
guitar may not be tabbed perfectly (some of the slides may be bends etc.) but all the notes
be there.

This tab doesn’t give the timing but just play along with the song and you should get
hang of it! Alright, that’s enough rambling, enjoy the tab.
