I have seen only a few tabs for this song on the internet and they are horrendously
I have played it live a few times, so I trust its accuracy. This is an absolutely great song
very cool to play with a bunch of people.

Please rate this tab, and give any comments where you see fit.


At the beginning some werid seagull sounds are made by turning on the delay to 350
(I am not sure on how much feedback, but you can estimate pretty close) and pick scraping the
2nd and 3rd strings repeatedly.

(With a delay set at 350 milliseconds)

beautifully Tabbed. 100% accurate. I personally think the end after the solo should've been:

e|-13-13-13-| on and on to fade
b|-11-11-11-|
