Wake Up Tab

Song - Wake Up
Album - Self Titled

Most tabs for this song I've found only have the main riff and the first solo, so I
tabbed out the whole song including small transition parts, because without them the
song doesn't sound as good. Most of it is right, except for maybe the variation riff
in the first verse, and the intro can be played heaps of different ways and they mostly
sound right.  Sorry theres no second solo at the moment, its kind of messed up and 
hard to work with all the effects over it.  This tab is entirely my own work. Questions,
comments and corrections can be sent to my email address.
