This is a trippy song to say the least. Raw power, growl, and awesome drums. The bass line
was a bit beyond me for a long time, but now, for your enjoyment, here it is, in it's 
entirety.

*****
Verse
*****

This riff is repeated throughout all the verse sections, plain and simple.


     1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &
G|-------------------4---5---5-------|
D|-----------0-----------------------|
A|---------------2-------------------|
E|---1-------------------------------|


Next, the chorus(ish) section. It is an Am-G-F-E progression, and really can be
just made up off of that, since it sounds like he's just syncopating the single
note on the E string. I'll write up what I do in this area. Note the syncopation
with the notes around the 3.


     1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &       1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &
G|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------7---------------7-------|-----------5---------------5-------|
E|---5-------------5---5---------5---|---3-------------3---3---------3---|


     1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &       1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &
G|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------3---------------3-------|---------------4-------4---2---0---|
E|---1-------------1---1---------1---|---0-------------------------------|


I just cooked this up for those of us who don't like 'follow the chords' bass
tab. I know that stuff stinks. I hope this is satisfactory.

Then comes the little break with all the 'why' lyrics.  Really softly.


     1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &       1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &
G|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|    
D|---------------------------7-------|-----------------------------------|    
A|-----------7-----------7-------7---|-----------5---------------5-------|    
E|---5-----------5-------------------|---3-----------3-------3-------3---|


This is just repeated over and over during this part.

ok, the end of this changes towards the end where Dave starts getting nuts about
'Lovey Dove,' etc... 



     1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &       1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &
G|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------7---------------7-------|-----------5---------------5-------|
E|---5-------------5---5---------5---|---3-------------3---3---------3---|


     1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &       1     &     2     &     3     &   
G|-----------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------|---------0---------------------------|
A|-----------3---------------3-------|---------------2-----2-----3-----2---|
E|---1-------------1---1---------1---|---1---------------------------------|


These 4 bars are repeated during these lyrics, and on the last one, these are played,
and the following bar (the one where the drum solo starts) hits hard on a low F.

     1
G|-------|
D|-------|
A|-------|
E|---1---|


This is the note struck every 4 bars during the drum solo. All the members do it.

Now, near the end, this little deal is done.


     1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &       1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &
G|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|    
D|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|    
A|-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|    
E|---0---0---0---0---1---1---2---2---|---3---3---3---3---4---4---5---5---|


     1   &   2   &  
G|-------------------|
D|-------------------|
A|-------------------|
E|---1-----------1---|


This gets really awesome when the voilin and guitar get in on it, and it starts to
sound like a speeding train :) 

Wicked song. I hope you likes.
