I'll Stick Around by Foo Fighters

This is a pretty simple song.  Two major riffs in the whole song really.
I've typed up what I think they are here.  Listen to the song to figure out
exactly where they go.



  Riff 1______________________________________________
G:--------------------------|------------------------|
D:------------------------3-|----------------------3-|
A:------------6--6-----3----|----------6--6-----3----|
E:---3--3--r--------6-------|-3--3--r--------6-------|
                                             (end riff 1)
  _____________________________________________
G:------------------------|--------------------------|
D:----------------------3-|--------------------------|
A:----------6--6-----3----|----------6--6-----3------|
E:-3--3--r--------6-------|-3--3--r--------6-----6---|


   Riff 2______________(x6)_____________________________
G:--------------------------|--------------------------|
D:*------------------------*|--------------------------|
A:*----------1-------------*|--------------------------|
E:--1--3--r-----3--r--3--0--|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|

                     (end riff 2)
  _________________________
G:--------------------------|
D:--------------------------|
A:--------------------------|
E:--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|

*These are the verse riffs, play them when the verses are played.  Listen to
the song to figure out where they go.  Sometimes Riff 2 is broken up and 
only the repeated part is played, and somewhere in the song the tail of 
riff 2 (the E:--3--3--3--3--3...) is played after riff 1.

...Then before the chorus, this bit is played
G:--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D:--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A:--1----1----1--1-----------------------------3--(let-ring......)----|
E:--------------------3-----3----3----3--3--0-------------------------|
   I've  taken  all             and i've endured ...

G:---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D:---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A:--1-----1-----1--1-----------------------3----3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3-|
E:----------------------3----3----3--3--0------------------------------------|
    One day  it   all  will fade  i'm sure ....


G:----------------|
D:----------------|
A:-3--3--3--3--3--|
E:----------------|
                   
Then play Riff 1 under the chorus.  "I don't owe you anything, i don't owe..."


This is the bit before the ending of the song.  You know where it goes.

G:--------------------------|--------------------------|
D:*-------------------------|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|
A:*-6--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--|--------------------------|
E:--------------------------|--------------------------|
    I'll stick around          I'll stick    around

G:--------------------------|--------------------------|
D:--------------------------|-------------------------*|
A:--------------------------|--5--5--5--3--3--5--5--5-*|
E:--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|--------------------------|
         and learn from all           that came from it

At the very end of the song, play Riff 1 again twice, and the last two
notes of the song are C, played on the A string (fret 3 on the A string)

Good tab - a lazy man might keep his fingers in first position, pretty much the entire song. So riff 1 becomes
