Why Im Here Tab

   
This tab took me goddamn *FOREVER* (12hrs+) to make because of that pesky solo.
This is my first complete tab of a song, so let me know if I goofed
anywhere. I hope you like it, cuz it took forever and this song rox!

I'd like to thank TheJoker for his help on the main solo!
It's a bitch to learn but sounds cool with the right distortion.

On the last slide, just mute and slide down the neck away from you
to create that 'scrape' sound.

This little lick doesn't sound hard, but it really is. On the first starred
piece, bend the 7 to 8, release the bend and quickly slide to 8.
The second starred piece, hammer 5 to 7, bend the 7 to 8, tap the
8 on the b string with your pinky while holding the bend, release the bend,
then bend it upwards to 8 again. This is all in one fluid motion.
GOOD LUCK! It took me a good 20 minutes to get it all right and
get my fingers moving in the right directions :)
