Kele's part (rhythm guitar)

This 7 bar riff is repeated four times before Russell's part comes in, and a further 
times before the chorus.

This is Russell's riff (lead guitar) that comes in just after the first verse.
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B|--13------13----|--12------13----|--13------13----|--12------13----|
G|------12------12|------12------12|------12-----12-|------12------12|

E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

E|----------------|----------------|----------------|

Again, this seven bar riff repeats over Kele's riff four times.

The notes in brackets are the notes that the chord implies, I'm not entirely sure if he
plays them.


[Chorus] (Kele's part):
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
G|-(2)-(2)-(2)-(2)|-(2)-(2)-(0)-(0)|-(5)-(5)-(5)-(5)|-(7)-(7)-(7)-(5)|
D|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
A|0---0---0---0---|0---0-----------|-3---3---3---3--|-5---5---5---3--|
E|----------------|--------3---3---|----------------|----------------|

E|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B|----------------|----------------|----------------|
G|-(2)-(2)-(2)-(2)|-(2)-(2)-(0)-(0)|-(5)-(5)-(5)-(5)|
D|----------------|----------------|----------------|
A|0---0---0---0---|0---0-----------|-3---3---3---3--|
E|----------------|--------3---3---|----------------|

And this repeats twice for the chorus.


[Chorus] (Russell's part):

E|------------------|-----------------|------------------|-----------------|
B|------------------|-----------------|------------------|-----------------|
G|--------12-10-9---|-9---------------|--------12-10-9---|-9---------------|
D|10-10-10--------12|--10—-10--10---12|10-10-10--------12|--10—-10--10---12|
A|------------------|-----------------|------------------|-----------------|
E|------------------|-----------------|------------------|-----------------|

E|-------------------|------------------|-------------------|
B|-------------------|------------------|-------------------|
G|---------12-10-9---|-9----------------|---------10-9--12--|
D|10-10-10---------12|---10—-10--10---12|10-10-10-----------|
A|-------------------|------------------|-------------------|
E|-------------------|------------------|-------------------|

This is repeated twice for the chorus.

After this, it goes back to the two main parts at the beginning, but with Russell's part 
at the same time as Kele's. This is repeated five times before the chorus comes in again.


[Second chorus]

The above parts for Kele & Russell are repeated twice as normal, then Russell's part is 
on. I think the chords are just filled out more, a bit like this. It's quite hard to tab 
I may attempt to at a later date...

E|---------15--------|------------------|
B|---------13--------|------------------|
G|---------12-10-9---|-9----------------|
D|10-10-10---------12|---10—-10--10---12|
A|-------------------|------------------|
E|-------------------|------------------|


[Coda] (Kele only):

E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B|--5---5---5---5-|--5---5---5---5-|--5---5---5---5-|--5---5---5---5-|
G|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
D|----------------|----------------|2---2---2---2---|3---3---3---2---|
A|3---3---3---3---|3---3---2---2---|----------------|----------------|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

G|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
D|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
A|3---3---3---3---|3---3---2---2---|0---0---0---0---|-3--------------|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

Nice tab, I think it's pretty much correct. I don't see anything wrong with it.
