I can't believe no one has got this song right yet!  This is how Jeff plays it on his live
DVD, and it sounds perfect with the album as well.  Great song!

Verse 1:
A
I sincerely miss
      A2/G
Those heavy metal bands

I used to go see
       E 
On the landing in the summer
    A
She fell in love with a drummer
    A2/G
She fell in love with a drummer
    G             E
She fell in love


Verse 2:
Shiny shiny pants
Bleached blond hair
Double kick drum
By the river in the summer
She fell in love with a drummer
Another
Then another
She fell in love

Unlock my body
Move myself to dance
Into warm liquid
Flowing blowing glass
Classical music blasing
Masks the ringing in my ears

Oh I sincerely miss
Those heavy metal bands
I used to go see
On the landing in the summer
She fell in love with a drummer
She fell in love with another
She fell in love

Great tab. I think the E also has an Eadd9 mixed in, so add the pinky on the 2nd fret of the first string. That will give you the high-note melody during the E chord. Listen to the song again if you don't know what I'm talking about.

yeah, i agree the sound is there, though i think it is because jeff plays a 12-string. but it does make it sound closer. thanks.
