Standard Tuning

Intro: bass
                                     |-------->slide up
I-----9-------------5----------------7----------------12--------
I----10-------------7----------------8----------------14--------

As you slide up, MAKE SURE YOU HOLD THOSE NOTES...you'll get the coolest 
sound in the world and it's also part of the song.

I--------------------------------------------------I
I-----------------2---2----------------------------I
I------7---7---3-3-3-3-3-0-0-3-0-0-3-0-----0---0---I
I--0-0--0-0-0-0-0---------------------0-1-1-1-1-0--I

Repeat this when band kicks in until the second time, instead of playing 
an F, play a Bb on your first Fret A string.

2nd time

I-------------------------------------------------------I
I-----------------2---2---------------------------------I
I------7---7---3-3-3-3-3-0-0-3-0-0-3-0-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--I
I--0-0--0-0-0-0-0---------------------------------------I

Then the first section repeats but when the band begins to build, hold 
the F

I--------------------------------------------------------------------------I
I-----------------2---2----------------------------------------------------I
I------7---7---3-3-3-3-3-0-0-3-0-0-3-0-------------------------------------I
I--0-0--0-0-0-0-0---------------------0-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-0--I

The rest of the band kicks in here: This is the most used riff throughout 
the song, take note of the last 6 notes, work on the timing to nail that 
down. There's a modification of this part in the octave later on in the 
song.

just before the solo there is a sudden stop. End on the C

Interlude - extremely inaudible. These are the correct "base" notes but I 
can't hear what David is actually playing. If you wanna play with it, try 
messing around the 5th of each note (i.e. F/C or G/D).

I----------------------------I
I----------------------------I
I--0--8--10--8--0-\-12-------I
I----------------------------I

After the interlude, the band breaks in again with a VERY tight connection. 
You have to do one hell of a pull off on your E string to make it sound 
really good.
