standard tuning

*note* throughout this song, there is a second guitar playing lead over
the main chords; it's not very complicated, but it's mostly patternless
improv, and therefore very arduous to tab out. if someone is desperate
for this lead, make a request, but i suggest you just improv it yourself; 
much more fulfilling, IMO.
