NOTES:
This tab is for the instrumental version of the song.
To play along the original song (featuring Lauri Ylonen's vocals)
you should make minor changes to the lead guitar.
Also, if you want to be precise, in the "Breakdown" bit i suggest
playing the Main riff in the high e string for ease of playing.
However, the correct place to play it is on the 2nd fret, A chord diagramD MajorD string.
Standard tuning
