great song off the album, one of my favourite matthew good tunes along with
pledge of allegiance, load me up, i'm a window, black helicopter, weapon and
apparations (if you havent heard those and you like this one, check em out)

this is the main riff here, doesnt change very much through out the verses
e|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|--4-4/-6-6-6------------------------|
D|--4-4/-6-6-6---------6-6\-2-2-2-----|
A|--2-2/-4-4-4---------6-6\-2-2-2-----|
E|---------------------4-4\-0-0-0-----|
                          ^---------|             
                 for this slide here|, I like to keep
                 my 3rd and 4th fingers on the D and A
                 strings to get that full fluent slide
                 effect that you hear in the song instead
                 of changing to 1st annd 2nd fingers 
                 during the slide.


e|-------------------------------|  when he's got the whole techno/distorted
B|-------------------------------|  effect going, i think this is better to 
G|-------------------------------|  play versus the power chords, since they
D|-------------------------------|  arent as strong. since the more powerful
A|--2-2/-4-4-4-------------------|  chords come out at random times, you can
E|-------------------4-4\-0-0-0--|  judge for yourself what to play/when.


at 0:25 the pre-chorus hits with this (not exact # of notes here)
e|------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2----|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------------------------------------|


Chorus:
e|------------------------------|
B|------------------------------|
G|--6------2-------------4------| (x2)
D|--6(x8)--2(x8)--2------4(x8)--|
A|--4------0------2(x8)--2------|after 2nd time through, with the last chord,
E|----------------0-------------|transition into the main verse riff again


the 2nd verse continues on that main riff with a mix between the chords and
the single notes. same pre-chorus as well

Chorus:
e|------------------------------|
B|------------------------------|
G|--6------2-------------4------| (x4)
D|--6(x8)--2(x8)--2------4(x8)--|
A|--4------0------2(x8)--2------|
E|----------------0-------------|


at the end of the 4th time through the chorus we get to the bridge:

e|----------|------------------------|
B|----------|------------------------|
G|--4-4/-6--|--6-6-------------------| (x5)
D|--4-4/-6--|--6-6--7-6-2-4-4--4-44--|only repeat whats in between the
A|--2-2/-4--|--4-4--7-6-2-4-4--4-44--|lines, the first bit is the transition 
E|----------|-------5-4-0-2-2--2-22--|from the chorus to the bridge
                        ^---------------|

*note*: this is just the backround to the whole solo, but i couldnt figure
it out with all of the effects and distortion


when you are at the 5th reptition, play this:
e|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|--6-6----------4---|
D|--6-6--7-6-2---4---|
A|--4-4--7-6-2---2---|
E|-------5-4-0-------|

then that transitions back into the main verse riff, but at around 2:39,
this happens:
e|----------------------|
B|----------------------|
G|-------------------4--|
D|--6-6\-2-2-2-----2-4--|
A|--6-6\-2-2-2-----2-2--|
E|--4-4\-0-0-0-----0----|


after that little variation, backround guitar comes in with this and
continues until the final chorus (not exact number of notes):
e|---0--0--0--0--0---|
B|----4--4--4--4--4--|
G|-------------------|
D|-------------------|
A|-------------------|
E|-------------------|


then about half-way through the pre-chorus it switches to this (not exact
number of notes):
e|------------------|
B|---7-7-7-7-7-7-7--|
G|------------------|
D|------------------|
A|------------------|
E|------------------|


continue the verse riff while the backrounds are going, but at the second
slide (where matt sings "devil's on sugar smacks"), play this:
e|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---------------------|
D|--6-6/-7-7-7----6-4--| 
A|--6-6/-7-7-7----6-4--|
E|--4-4/-5-5-5----4-2--|


after that its:
main riff
pre-chorus
chorus (x4)


the chorus chords are backround to the outro that starts at around 3:33 and
goes like this:
e|-----------|---------------------|
B|--5-4-5-0--|--7-6-7-0---7-6-7-0--|
G|-----------|---------------------| (x2)
D|----(x6)---|---------------------|
A|-----------|---------------------|
E|-----------|---------------------|


and the song ends on playing the main riff one last time going out really
strong.



hope this helps!! i couldnt figure out the really high pitched backrounds on
most of the parts but this is my first tab so there might be a few glitches
in it but comment and let me know what you think!
