Chorus (1:20)
these chords are shared between two guitars.
they're basically taking turns, so to speak.

(repeat this untill last chord)
e|-22----66-66-66----66-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-22----99-77-66----66-----------------------------------------------------|
G|-33-44-66-88-66-66-66-66--------------------------------------------------|
D|-44-33-88-88-88-88-88-88--------------------------------------------------|
A|-44----66-66-88----88-----------------------------------------------------|
E|-22----------66----66-----------------------------------------------------|

the last chord before chorus ends
on the final strum, strum the chord 3 times (up, down up) very rapidly to achieve the 
in the song.

e|-44----44----44----444------------------------------------------------------|
B|-44----44----44----444------------------------------------------------------|
G|-55-55-55-55-55-55-555------------------------------------------------------|
D|-66-66-66-66-66-66-666------------------------------------------------------|
A|-66----66----66----666------------------------------------------------------|
E|-44----44----44----444------------------------------------------------------|
back to riff I including the 'light' chords played over the top but at full volume this
(1:58)

after this only the vocals can be heard. play the light chords over the top. (2:14)

just the vocals, bass and drums can be heard now until 2:58 where the chorus parts are
again.

at 3:13 you can make out another riff in the background with a strange effect to it.
is how it goes.

e|-------11----------9------------------------------------------------------|
B|---11----11----11---11----------------------------------------------------|
G|-----11----11----11---11--------------------------------------------------|
D|-11----------11-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

(repeat according to song)

after this riff I including the chords over the top are played.
however riff is changed slightly on the third time (3:53) as you probably can hear. it
like this.

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----11p10---------------10------------------------------------------------|
D|--------13-11-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------13-11-13-13--88-9-11-----------------------------------------|
E|-9-9----------------------------------------------------------------------|
