This tab may sound shit when you play it yourself but add bass,
another guitar, drums and vocals and it will sound perfect.


INTRO: The intro is just a heap of string noise (mutes, rakes
and pick slides). I got the right sound by sliding the pick up
and down the strings furiously...rest your fret hand on top of
the strings to prevent the strings from ringing.

VERSE 1
Guitar 1:
A-------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------|
G---------------------------------------------------0---------|
G---------------------------------------------------0---------|
F#--0-0--x-x-x-x--0-0--x-x-x-x--0-0--x-x-x-x--0--x------------|
F#--0-0--x-x-x-x--0-0--x-x-x-x--0-0--x-x-x-x--0--x------------|

Guitar 2:
A-------------------|
A-------------------|    Bend this note very slowly. Listen to
G-----6-------------|    song for timing.
G-----6-------------|
F#------------------|
F#------------------|

CHORUS
Both guitars?
A -------------------------------------|---------------|
A -------------------------------------|---------------|
G -------------------------------------|---------------|

F#---5-6-5---5-6-5---5-6-5---3-4-4-----|---0-----------|
F#---5-6-5---5-6-5---5-6-5---3-4-4-----|---0-----------|

SOLO
Both guitars? No strumming shown
A ------------------|-----------------------------------------|
A ------------------|-----------------------------------------|
G ---11--12---x2----|---16--17---x2---------------------------|
G ---11--12---------|---16--17--------------------------------|
F#------------------|-----------------------------------------|
F#------------------|-----------------------------------------|

VERSE AFTER CHORUS
Guitar 1
I think just plays some rythmn, try 1st fret on the F#s or maybe
just open f#s.

Guitar 2
A -----------------------------------------------------------|
A -----------------------------------------------------------|
G ---20--17--19----17--19b-----------------------------------|
G -----------------------------------------------------------|
F#-----------------------------------------------------------|
F#-----------------------------------------------------------|

After this I think there is some sort of slide stuff followed by 2
monster pick slides before the music is the same as the first verse.
