[original note: 'e' stands for eighth notes, 's' for sixteenth, `q' for 
quarter, `h' for half, and, yes, even `w' for whole notes. A period 
after a note value means dotted. 
The chord parts are best played with your index finger on the B string,
middle on the G string (using pinky for pull-offs), and ring finger on 
the D string, with the thumb wrapping around and playing the low E 
string.
Sounds hard, but gets easier with practice.]
[Strumming: for main pattern (bar 10), accent every 3rd 16th -- on '+':

The aim of tabsHeaven.net is to transmit some useful resources for musicians that wish to improve their skills. Therefore, the content of the files is to be used for private study, scholarship or research only. Moreover, the goal is also to give to the guitarist a chance to make original arrangements of songs and to share them with other guitarists. Consequently, these tabs are a personal interpretation of a musical arrangement by a Guitar Pro user and do not intend to provide a precise tab of the artist. If you notice any Guitar Pro files with a copyright infraction, warn us and the file will be deleted.

We do not aspire to infringe copyrights, and we embolden you to purchase the artist's album and official song book.
