First attempt at a tab, thought i'd give this one a go as no-one has done it correctly 
 (the only other one is very wrong!).
I haven't put the exact number of hits on a lot of the riffs, it's simple to work out.
Please mail any corrections to vivasykes@gmail.com.

It's too hard to type up the exact mutes and notes for the next bit but you'll be able 
pick it up.
The bass normally plays the bit in brackets, but it's a nice addition and the band do it live.

Lack of accuracy. Chorus and ending section is innacurate
