In order to accurately convey the double digit fret work to you I used two methods 
of symbolism. First, I used the symbol "&", like I have done in many of my other 
tabs, to replace double digit symbols in a way that shows correct chronological  
order and shows the beat progression well. 

Second, I used the symbol "!" to show the beginning and end of the use of a  
different substitution method. As can be seen at 0:03, "!" is used to show 
the use of double digit frets as single numbers. For example, 10th fret = 0, 
12th fret = 12, a bend on the 14th fret up a whole step = 4b6.....etc. 

The "!" is used to prevent overuse of "&". I don't know for sure, but if you ask  
me: 


This reads a lot easier: 

   !                                                           ! 
               &=2h4                 &=4b6                 &=4b6

  (         using symbol reduction and symbol substitution         )  

Than this does:    

             &  =  &=14        &   =   &=14 
   &=12    & = &=12      &=&=&=    &  =  &=12      
     &=14      &=12h14 &=0       &=16&=4b6                 &=14b16

  (        using symbol substitution      )   (not using any symbols) 

It's just a game of trying to make the tab readable but not a mile long. And as 
far as I know there's no other way to fit double digit fret symbols like "10" or  
"12" into a chronologically correct tab without making the tab a mile long. You 
could represent the notes and rests as their durations (quarter, eighth, sixteenth) 
but if you ask me that just makes it unnecessarily harder to read for beginners. 

I just want to reduce confusion and ease the transition from the tablature to 
your fingers. I want you to be able to play the right notes at the right time. I 
want you to see beat progressions and chord progressions and how the instruments  
work with each other. 

Last thing, I lined up the the vocals to their correct spots in the beat so you 
can learn where to sing. I had to use symbols for some of the lyrics too, because 
some words span longer than 1-2 *'s. In most instances I just used the first word 
of the lyric (eg - at 0:38 f = for). I used "&" for "and" 2-3 times, too, just  
so you know in case you see an "&" and nothing else with it. 

Last last thing, I can't really tell what's being played during Chorus 2. 

Comment or message any ideas or corrections. Please rate my tab. If you've got 
problems with the tab, I'd encourage you to contact me with those problems so I 
can fix the tab or provide advice for playing. Don't just give me a poor rating 
and not give me any feedback. The idea is for us all to work together to create 
a perfect finished product. This tab just represents the best I can do. It's  
definitely up for peer review. 



Key: 
where # represents a fret number 

#h# - hammer 
#p# - pull 
/ \ - slides, up and down respectively. 
#b# - bend from normal note up to achieve bended note. 
#r# - release bend from bended note to normal note. 
pb# - on fret #, bend up a whole step then attack and release 
 x  - mute 
 ~  - Extend. Play a hammer or pull-off over a longer time period 
 *  - time keeper. if you played a steady 
      baseline, you'd see the notes are  
      displayed in the tab in the correct  
      chronological order.  
 &  - symbol substitution marker 
 !  - symbol reduction marker 


Intro: 


  0:03 
   !- from here to 0:38, double digits are represented as single digits 
        for example, 0 = 10, 2 = 12, 4b6 = 14b16, pb4 = pb14....etc.
