[-----------------------------------------]x6

[-0--0-----0-0--0-----0-0--0-0----0-0-3---] 

This next variation in the 2nd verse sounds like a whammy pedal set one octave up. 
Hit the power chord on the 10th fret and let it sustain, rock the pedal forward then back. 
If you dont have a whammy pedal, slide the chord up to the 22nd fret then back again, but only 
the first chord is struck.

I was undecided as to this next riff. Its either the intro riff with a low D pedal note 
or the intro riff simply played an octave lower. I'm choosing the latter the latter

Thankyou so much! When I first saw someone had posted a tab for The Pot, I was thinking... "Please let it not suck!"

You my friend, have done a fantastic job.
