I havnt found any acurate tabs for this 
yet so I figured there were people who
would like to play the song so here is how
i hear it. He plays it a few different ways 
when going from his album to a live set-even 
slapping the bass notes sometimes live.

The low E needs to be tuned down all the way to a C.
This C will act as your bass line while playing.

I can promise you this is correct-the timming is the 
key and every note listed really is there. This in 
no way represents the rythm, it would have taken hours
to tab that you should be able to figure it out.

h=hammer-on
/=slide up
X=play muted string

This is tab-ed from a live rechording:

This is a great tab, very accurate on the intro. The other bits are just playing around the chords, but in a rather weird way :P I love it. Nice one!
