Do you know what pedal Alex uses for the solo? Thanks!

I think that is the same that Jamie uses all over the song, the Eletro Harmonix Big Muff... I used it and the sound is very good for the solo!

Very good. All you're missing is Jamie's part during verse 2 which goes like this:

e|-5/13---5/12---5/10---8\4--|-5/13---5/12---5/10---8\4--|
B|---------------------------|---------------------------|
G|---------------------------|---------------------------|
D|---------------------------|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|---------------------------|

e|-5/13---17/12---5/10---8\4--|-5/13---5/12---5/10---8\4--|
B|----------------------------|---------------------------|
