yes i use alternate tuning because that was the way it was meant to be played, im not 
transcribe it to another tuning so u go ahead if u want to

this is a really good song, my favorite on the new cd, very simple i figured out most of 
except the solo which ill get back to, this is most of what i figured out.

the strumming pattern on the intro/chorus isnt difficult so i just wrote where to place 
fingers, i didn't bother to put the pattern
