First of all, this song is very random, so you just have to go with the flow.
Almost the whole song is based off of the Verse riff and the Chorus riff. 
There are some improvisions and licks which I will show, but you have to 
just go with the flow and make up stuff to sound like it.


Intro: Fast

G|------------------------|
D|------------------------|
A|------------------------|
E|-/8-0-----12\-00-----1/-|



Verse: Fast (percussive; emphasize the notes with ( ) around them)

G|------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------3-|
A|---------------------------------------3---3----|
E|-0-(0)-0-0-(0)-0-0-(0)-0-(0)-0-0---1------------| 
                                   \------/------A lot of times this 
                                                 whole end part is made
G|--------------------------------------|        higher like down here:
D|--------------------------------------|                             |
A|--------------------------------------|                             |
E|-0-(0)-0-0-(0)-0-0-(0)-0-(0)-0-0-1111-|                    |
                                                                              

A lot of times a (2)   
is stuck in here
          /--------------------------------------------------------/
G|---------|
D|-------5-|
A|-3---3---|
E|---1-----|



Chorus:

G|----------------------------------------------------------|
D|o---------------------------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-----o-|
A|o-0-0-0-0-2---0-0-0-0-3---0-0-0-0---------------------0-o-|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

G|-----------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------o-|
A|-0-0-0-0-2---0-0-0-0-3---0-0-0-0-------------o-|
E|---------------------------------1--1-1--111---|


Sometimes the A|-0-0-0-0- 's go A|-000-0-0- (if you don't understand what
I mean by this, mail me).


Somewhere along the line, after a few Verses and Chorus's, there is a break
like below:

G|------------|-------------|------------|-----------------|--------------|
D|------------|-------------|------------|---------5-------|--------------|
A|------------|-------------|------------|-------7---7-5---|--------------|
E|-00---------|-00--1111----|-00---------|-00------------7-|-0------------|

G|----8---------------------------|----------------|
D|-11---11----7---5---5-----------|----------------|
A|---------------------7---7-5----|----------------|
E|------------------------------7-|-0--------------|


Then you do a lot of stuff like:

G|--------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------3-3-3-3-2-|
A|--------------------------------------|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------------|

And stuff like:

G|-----------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------3-|
A|---------------------------------3---3---|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---1-----------|


Just be inventive, and go with the flow of the song. It'll go in and out
of muffled parts and the Main Verse.


Also, after the first, slow wa-wa solo, there is a muffled part for a while.
Then do the bass lick below, to open it up to the next, faster, solo.

G|-----------------|
D|----5-7-5--------|
A|-7---------7-5---|
E|---------------7-|


The end, after one last Chorus, goes like:

G|-----------------|
D|-----------------|
A|-----------------|
E|-0----------X-X\-|

G|-------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------(5)-|
