Heres my rendition of the song. I've seen several, very different versions already but
of them seem to be completely faithful to the song. Its a mix of ear transcription and
posted tabs, so thanks for those posters for giving me a hand =P

I've tried to make it as easy to follow as possible. This song isn't particualy
and sounds geat acoustic (the only way to play it IMO). Its a good song to start finger 
with.

The easiest way to this is rest your last three fingers on the stratch plate, leaning
the e string; and place your thumb over the A and your index finger over the D string.
this position you can alternate plucking between finger and thumb, and move them up and 
the strings as neccescary - just keep the thumb on the low strings and he finger on the
strings.

(FA#D#G#CC)
>Tune Down One Step by tuning the A string to the 4th fret of E; then tuning the rest of
strings with regards to the new A. Don't forget to tune the E at the end. You also need
tune the e to he B string (now F and C). This is standard placebo tuning. You can ignore 
e to B tuning though, as those strings aren't used.

[listen to the song to get timing right, and correct me if you think its wrong]

you can play this by plucking power chords with a capo on the 1st fret.
