I havent figured out yet the chords for Gtr 2, but here’s the main tab, so enjoy!
INTRO/MAIN RIFF

GTR. 1

For Verse 1, repeat main riff until the lyrics:... from who we are, then start playing this:
(I guess you could call it the Pre-chorus)
(Gtr 2 begins to strum chords over top of Gtr 1.)

Verse 2:  Play main riff until the second prechorus, which is after these lyrics: bear it all alone: Gtr 2 continues to strum on top.

e-2-----2-----2h3-----2-----2-----3--5-----5-----3-----2-----2-------2h3-2h3-2h3-
a---3-----3-------3-----3-----3--------3-----3-----3-----3-----3---3-------------

D--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

e-2h3-2h3-----3p2-2-----2-----2-----2-----2-------I
a-----------3-------2-----2-----2-----2-----2---2-I
G---------0---------------------------------------I
D---------------------4-----4-----4-----4-----4---I
A-------------------------------------------------I
E-------------------------------------------------I

Then there’s a really nice chord solo which is strummed out by Gtr 2 after the break after the second chorus.  This is just the acoustic version of the song. One of my friends picked it up off Kazaa, so I’m sure you can download it there.  I’ll be back at some point with the second guitar, but I’ll have to work on it a bit more before I can start to tab it out.
This is my first tab, and I’d like to see another 12 year old with only a year of guitar lessons to try and do this any better. I’m 99% sure about this tab!
