Tuning: Drop D (DADG)

I've seen a lot of different tabs of this (most of which suck), 
but this is the actual, honest-too-goodness version that Nate is playing. 
I listened to the Rock Band multi-track to get it, so it's the real deal. It 
might seem a little odd to look at compared to the other tabs, but I am 
absolutely positive this is correct. Play along and I think you'll agree. If 
you know music theory, you'll see that this harmonizes with what the guitar
is playing, as it should.  

To match Nate's tone, I'd suggest going heavy on the bass and middle but
pulling back on the treble, and turn your pickup down halfway. 


Verse 1:

(Bass comes in at roughly 21 seconds)


G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0--0--12--0--12--12--0--12--0--0--12--0--12--12--12--0-------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---------------------------|



Play that until the pre-chorus (right after "and out of my head she sang...")

Pre-chorus: 


G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--7----7--7--7--7--7----------|

                                                         ^("And I wonder...")

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--7----7--7--7--7--7----------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0------------------------------|


(It jumps to the chorus part of the way through a measure of the pre-chorus,
so that's why it looks funny.) 

Chorus:


G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9---9--9--9--9--9--5---5--5---5--5--5------------------------------------|

Verse 2:


G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0--0--12--0--12--12--0--12--0--0--12--0--12--12--12--0-------------------|

D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---------------------------|


Repeat until the pre-chorus again...

Pre-chorus:


G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--7----7--7--7--7--7----------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--7----7--7--7--7--7----------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0------------------------------|


Chorus:


G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9---9--9--9--9--9--5---5--5---5--5--5------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--12---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9---9--9--9--9--9--5---5--5---5--5--5------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--12---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9---9--9--9--9--9--5---5--5---5--5--5------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--12---12--12---12--12--12--7--7--7--7--7--7-------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---------------------------------|


The bass cuts out and Dave mutters a bunch of gibberish here. At 3:21, it
comes back in with this: 


G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7---|


Then it does a modified version of the pre-chorus: 


G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0|


Repeat that until it goes to the chorus again (after "And I wonder...").

Final chorus: 


G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9---9--9--9--9--9--5---5--5---5--5--5------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--12---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9---9--9--9--9--9--5---5--5---5--5--5------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--12---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9---9--9--9--9--9--5---5--5---5--5--5------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--12---12--12---12--12--12--7--7--7--7--7--7-------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9---------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--17-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

    ^Let ring

Well, there you go. Sorry about the length, but I wanted to get it all. The 
rhythm is difficult to tab, so you may have to fiddle around to get it, but
I did the best I could. Like I said, this is 100% correct. Happy bass-ing!
