Unfortunately, there is no guitar on this track. There is, however, a guitar playing 
then using a tremolo to get an atmospheric sound.

e|---------------------------|
B|--8 (dip with tremolo)-----|
G|---------------------------|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

And live he played this along to the bass line...

B|---------------------------|
G|---------------------------|
D|-------2-2-2---------------|
A|-3-3-3---3-3-3-3-2-3-2-3---|

And tremolo dips this cord instead:

This whole tab is obviously Bass arranged for guitar. All Barney does
in this song is palm mute every now and again a F#5 (244xxx), and plays
the crazy synthesiser solo.

The next clean guitar part is just randomly picking at the chords that
correspond to the bass line. These chords to be exact ;)

    E   D   C   A

e|------2---0---0-----|
B|--9---3---1---2-----|
G|--9---2---0---2-----|
D|--9---0---2---2-----|

Then the chords are played just once after the interlude (Which is just
The randomly picked chords) with distortion and let ring

B|-9-----7------5--------------------|
G|-9-----7------5-----6--------------|
D|-9-----7------5-----7--------------|
A|-7-----5------3-----7--------------|
E|-0------------------5--------------|

Then the guitar solo...this is the “jist” of it actually...it’s just
These two parts played differently a few times...then the outro

e|----------------|------------------|

G|-9--11---9------|-9--11--9--12v----|

That is, virtually the whole song. There is a point where the 2 guitars
That are panned oppositely go out of time and it appears that
It plays the ascending riff for the whole 4 bars, so if you record this song,
Be sure to do that.

Here’s the outro solo...
