***R.I.P. Jimmy "The R.E.V." Sullivan. You will be miss. Amazing drummer, and a
talented musician.***

Update 1 (Oct. 14, 2008 9:00pm):

This is all still tabbed out by ear.

Update 2 (May 27, 2009 10:48pm):

I finally tabbed out the rhythym [sic] guitar for the first half of the guitar solo. Thanks to all you guys who gave me different ideas for that part, and now I finally tabbed it out. Sorry it took
me a while to update it, I had a whole bunch of other tabs I've been putting up, at least 30 or so.

Update #3 (Sept. 5, 2009 10:45am):

I fixed the intro lead. I had a 12th fret on the Gb string, but it really should be the 10th fret on the Bb string. So that's good to go. Everything else
is still the same.

Key: F Major (F G A Bb C D E F)

Legend:

b = bend
h = hammer on
p = pull off
... = palm mute
/ = slide down
\ = slide up
x = muffled string (lightly mute with your fret hand)
1 = full step bend
.5 = half step bend
1.5 = one and a half step bend
() = bring bent note to normal / note not picked
___ = hold bend
~ = vibrato / ring
h/ = pick once then slide
p\ = pick once then slide

Intro
The bends for this part only are gradual bends, meaning bend slowly. Syn really
the whammy
       bar up on all the notes, but for those of you who don't have a whammy bar, you
just bend
       the note making it sound the same. Syn also pushes down on the whammy bar,
after each
       of the bends. If you need more help on this, send me a message on my profile, or
a comment.
