    I have an audition this Sat and need to learn this song.

    The songs I need to play are in many different tunings and I would like to just play my fiver....does anyone have a tab for this song on 5 string?

    I would think that it would be the same as the tab for 4-string, wouldn't it? Just use the low B as a thumbrest (i.e.: ignore the string, pretend it isn't there). Unless you are wanting to use the low B for the song? I would think that since it was originally played on a 4-string, you would have a nearly impossible time finding it transcribed for a 5er. Good luck!
  3. Duff played it on a 4, I suggest you do the same. Play the 5 just ignore the B string.

    ...but Duff played it tuned down half a step (Eb, Ab...)..I was looking to not have to tune the 4 strings down...

    I know I can pull a 4 string tab and transcribe down a fret..but I was looking to save a little time...

    I cant help as i cant tab but i play this song in both C and A. Having a 5 string is a big help playing this in A but i could also do it on a 4 string.
    Just ignore the low B string unless you need it.
