About this tab version
This is a tabbed version incorportating percussion and rhythm to capture the feel of the original. Was this info helpful? Yes No
With this arrangement I've tried to capture the feel of the original, which is largely percussion and vocal
based. There are suggestions for tapping and slapping the fingers against the body of the guitar for certain
sections. This is indicated with a "T" for tap and a "S" for slap, located below the sixth string on the tab. 
Allow the chords to ring while adding the rhythm, except for where indicated by "N.C."

[Right before the second chorus, I've indicated an accent over the note on the 7th fret of the high e string.
This is here representing the background vocal "ooo" which adds some nice dissonance before resolving at the
start of the chorus]
