Hello! This is my 3rd attempt at tabbing a song by 3 Doors Down.
Not only because of demands, but because I think they are
the greatest band. I decided to tab this one COMPLETELY, because
it's such a good song. Hope you enjoy it!

Legend: h=hammer-on
        p=pull-off
        b=bend string
        r=release bend
        \=slide down
        v=Vibrato

Ok, here goes! Let's just hope I won't get some sort of typing
rigor mortis when I'm done this tab. 

The song starts off with two guitars playing the intro.
But I play both guitar at the same time because I don't
have another guitarist to do the second guitar.


(Intro)

Everything that is in parenthesis does not have to be played if you are
playing with only one guitar.

plays the solo.

Play this 8 times all together. For the first 4
times play it with palm mutes.


(SOLO) 

(It may not be perfect, but it sounds pretty damn good to me!)
I wasn't very precise with the timing 'cause...well... two words: me lazy.
