Verse
---------------------

First, there is one guitar playing this Em chord over and over again.
When the verse starts, it sounds like the 9th fret on the G-string
is hit while half-muted.
e|-7--|
B|-8--|
G|-9--|
D|-9--|
A|-7--|
E|----|

Then, after two 'bars', a tremolo-y, or wah-wah sounding guitar and another
guitar start to follow the bass notes palm-muted:
e|-12---10----8----7--|
B|-12---10----8----7--|
G|-12---11----9----8--|
D|-14---12----10---9--|
A|-14---12----10---9--|
E|-12---10----8----7--|

And
e|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|
G|-9~---7~----5~---4~----|
D|-----------------------|
A|-----------------------|
E|-----------------------|

------------------
Chorus 1
------------------
The chorus basically follows the intro-riff again. The same chords as in the
verse can be used under this.

------------------
Verse 2
------------------
The same as verse 1, but the Em chord is left out the second time. I guess
you'll notice. Again, the chords are played while another guitar plays
just one or two notes of these chords.

------------------
Chorus 2
------------------
Starts the same as chorus 1, but get's an extension somewhere around 2:18
which I believe is played like this:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----(8)---10/12---10\8-----8---10/12---10\8-----8---10/12-----8---10/12----|
G|-(9)---------------------9--------------------9-------------9--------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-10\8-----8---10/12---10\8-----8---10/12-----8---10/12---10\8-----8---10/12|
G|--------9--------------------9-------------9--------------------9----------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------|
B|-10\8-----8---10/12---8~----|
G|--------9-------------------|
D|----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|

Under this extension, these chords fit:
e|-5----8----7----10----8----7-|
B|-5----8----8----10----8----7-|
G|-5----9----9----11----9----8-|
D|-7----10---9----12----10---9-|
A|-7----10---7----12----10---9-|
E|-5----8---------10----8----7-|

----------------
Bridge
----------------
Then there is this awesome bridge which features Josh Homme and some choir-
like part. I think this part only has the chords which are also used in the
verse. 

----------------
Chorus 3/Outro
----------------
Chorus comes in again, while Josh is still singing. After a while, just 
before the chorus vocals stop, an additional guitar starts following the
bass notes of the chords and adds some additional notes. 

Ends with the Em again.

to make the intro easier, i think you can play it like:


e|----------7------------7--
B|----8--/10-----8---/10----
G|-/9---------/9------------
D|--------------------------
A|--------------------------
E|--------------------------

and so on.
