When you hear the intro to this song on the album, you're actually hearing what the
band played backwards.  To hear it how the band actually recorded it, put the CD into
your CD drive and use a sound recording software (Sound Recorder, Cool Edit, Sound Forge,
whatever you have on your computer) to record just the beginning.  Then you can find the
reverse function and hear it how they recorded it!

In this tab, riffs 1a through 1d is the tab for how they recorded it.  Riff 1b is a continuation
of 1a which is the "lead guitar" (actually recorded as 2 seperate tracks), and riffs 1c and 1d
are the "rythm guitar" the chords under it.  Riffs 1e through 1h (below) is the tab for the
album version and it works the same way.
