v1.1, 19 June 2003.

v1.1 : fixed bass in bridge.
fixed bass in break before last chorus.
fixed and extended outro solo.
added the slide of the guitar in the bridge.
fixed quite at lot of stuff in the 1st guitar solo
and the solo chorus.
I think there's also the double bass octave trick
in the chorus, but with reverse role, so I added it.

* Based on the tab by steframayana and

* I did start to tab it on my own, so
initially I just wanted to add vocals and a few fix to
their tab, but in the end I started adding/fixing/remove
quite a lot of stuff, because I wanted to be as close as
possible to the album version. As a result this tab is
more complex and faithfull to the original album but on
the other hand less adapted to an direct cover by a
band. So because I don't want to spoil the other tab I
decided to submit it as a separate tab.

* The bass: the "problem" with the bass in this song is
that when you hear it it's hard to decide if the bass
plays a low dropped D or a standard D, and this
confuses tabbers. I think this is because the bass is
doubled, one bass plays a dropped D, while the other
plays a normal D in the verses. It tabbed that with 2
bass tracks.

* Mixed for SBLive! with SBLive! midi synthesizer.

Have fun with this great song!
