Thank you sooo much!!! Can

Thank you sooo much!!!
Can you maybe upload your version somewhere? because it sounds better.

The original author asked to

The original author asked to have it (along with all their other tabs) removed from the site. Wasn't even sure if I should have posted it in these comments. But you can view it here at least.

Tuning Adjustment

4

I've adjusted this tab for Drop D tuning, Capo 3, since it sounds closer to the original.
It's more difficult, but definitely playable.

Aside from that, everything else is perfect. Thanks for the arrangement.

Edit: I don't know how to format this properly, but if you copy it into a text document it should come out fine.
