Overall, this song emphasizes the guitar and vocals, the
bass is there but is difficult to hear at times because of
the way the track is mixed.  If you have advanced EQ
settings then I recommend isolating and boosting the bass
in order to hear it better.

It's very likely that this tab is not 100% correct.  That's
not to say it's 100% wrong.  All the right root notes are
there, and if you just stick to them then this tab will
work fine.  This tab works best as an outline, showing you
what notes are played and roughly where.

If you cover this song, work with your guitarist and follow his/her
chord changes.  Some parts can be played in double time without
changing the tempo so experiment with it.


Bass starts at 00:37.

Chorus part 1

E -----------------------------3-3333333--|

*You can palm mute the 3's for some flavor if you think it
sounds better.  Remember, E3 and D5 are both G, but playing
the low G the second time sounds better for the lead in to
the chorus.  This is an example of adding your own touch, you
may want to add a few notes here and there to keep up with your
guitarist.

Chorus part 2

And I...
G -------------------------------|
D -------------------------------|
A 5-5-5-55h7-0-0-0-0-2--2-2------|
E --------------------------2-3~-|

The bass is difficult to pick up in the mix during the
chorus.  If you boost the 125 range on your EQ it's a bit
easier to hear and it sounds like he's hitting the notes in
synch with the drum beats.  You can always try double time
here if you can maintain the tempo.  Just note the F->G
climb at the end is always simply those two notes, you
can't miss it in the song.

The low G's are played in whatever picking style you chose
earlier for the lead in to part 2 of the chorus.

Again, with everything going on in this song it's difficult
to pick out the bass.  The above will sound just fine as it
follows the rhythm guitar for the most part.  But it is
most likely not 100% correct.  Feel free to add some
variation.  Below is a sample.

G ------------------------------------------|
D ------------------------------------------|
A ---------33333333-5555555555555555--------|  X 2
E 22222222----------------------------------|

G ------------------------9h11-----9h11----9h11-|
D ------------------5-4-5------4-5------4h5-----|
A ---------33333333-----------------------------|
E 22222222--------------------------------------|

G ------------------------------------|
D ------------------------------------|
A ---------33333333-------------------|
E 22222222----------3333333333333333~-|

The above is a variation where you mimic the hammer ons in the
solo that start at 03:03 and end at 03:06.  They're very
distinct, so if the tab seems off just listen to the song
and you can clearly hear them.

Bass enters again at 03:21 on the word "lips."
G ---------------------------------------|
D ----------------10-101010-10-----------|
A*5-555-5-0-000-0------------------------|
E -----------------------------3-3333333-|

*I like to slide into the A5 when the bass comes back in,
but that's optional.

And I...
G -------------------------------|
D -------------------------------|
A 5-5-5-55h7-0-0-0-0-2--2-2------|
E --------------------------2-3~-|

This part plays once more and is the last that the bass
plays, so feel free to add whatever flavor you like to it,
like playing in double time.

G -------------------------------|
D -------------------------------|
A 5-5-5-55h7-0-0-0-0-2--2-2------|
E --------------------------2-3~-|

This tab's difficulty comes in actually hearing the bass.  You'll most likely be
every instrument EXCEPT for the bass if you're trying to play along with the recording, since
so difficult to pick out at times.  Remember, if you're learning this in the first place 
are most likely going to cover it, so add your own touches to account for any parts that
seem wrong.

It seems close..but its not yet it, and the writing inbetween makes it very hard to play with and follow as the song plays. not giving it a 1 because its not good, just because of how it was wrote
