.  - palm mute           /  - slide up to
\  - slide down to       ~  - vibrato
h  - hammer on           b  - Bend  e.g.: 10b(12) = bend 1 tone
p  - pull off            pb - pre-Bend
t  - tap                 dv - dive (tremolo bar)
p.h. pinched harmonic    |--3---|   - triplets
*  - commentary          r - release bend
x  - Stuccatto           ~  - vibrato bend
,  - slight palm mute    () - ghost note, sustained note
"  - tremolo note        <> - Trill

Most of the times, two (-) are equal to one 8th note (if else,
i'll indicate it) to lighten the reading of the tabs.
The numbers above the measures are the time signatures.

As always, I'm not claiming that this is THE perfect tab. It's
simply my interpretation of the song, or how I like to play it.

Of course, any suggestions, improvements or comments are welcome.
