Play these 4-bars twice over the verse sections, and one over the last
4-bars of the bridge. This part is only an 'idea', all occurances of
Guitar3 differ. Play notes on the high strings with up/down strokes, let
all notes ring.

TAB Key
--------

	b  - bend a semitone (1 fret)
	h  - hammer on
	p  - pulloff
	/  - slide up
	\  - slide down
        rake - exagerate the strumming of the chord
	      (but not enough for it to be an arpeggio)

Notes
------

Guitar1 is heavily distorted and plays power chords over each
chorus (and first beat of each verse). It is also used in the
first 4 bars of each bridge.

Guitar2 plays the main parts. The sound is quite clean - with a
little processing (maybe a chorus effect). Let all notes ring.
The intro and choruses may have been double tracked (*). The solo
uses Em pentatonic - around the open position.

Guitar3 appears in the verses and last 4 bars of the bridge, both
parts are similar. It consists of first position, Em and  Dsus2
chords - played in an acoustic/delta blues style, emphasising open
strings.
This part isn't obvious, but it adds to the record - filling the
sparse melody lines played by Guitar2. This is played freely. I
didn't imagine anybody wanting to wade through loads of freestyle
rhythm guitar TAB, for a part thats barely noticeable on a casual
listen. I've only included a sanitised example of the style used.
Feel is more important than the exact choice of notes, which vary
throughout.

The stereo mix makes isolating guitar parts, difficult. Listening
to each stereo channel separately makes things clearer.

The guitars in the intro and choruses appear in both channels.
In the verses, Guitar1 and Guitar3 are in the right channel, and
Guitar2 in the left channel.
The guitar solo appears in both channels, but is strongest in the
left.
In the Bridge, Guitar1 is found in both channels, Guitar2 in the
left and Guitar3 in the right channel.
