1.this song has a ton of bending in it and i dont see the
need to go in the tab waste space and put a little bend symbol
 after every note so just pretend they are there also for every
note you bend pull your whammy bar in unison 2. ive studied
the video pretty closely and I'm 100% sure this is how isaac plays it
3. this wont sound right to you right away, take time to
practice the bending and add the right distortion then soon
enough itll sound just like the song


background tremelo notes probobly done by Johnny Marr but no reason why you cant play em eh?

i feel i dont need to tab 4:22 through 5:08 it's the same thing as the guitar intro but 
slight variation on it listen to it and use the same notes just change the rhythm up a 
and you got it

5:09 listen to the song to find out the strum pattern these are
the chords you will be using he does a variation each time he does
this part not to hard to figure out just switch the position of
the last two chords

For anyone who reads this they arent bends as much as whammys or whatever you would have in terms of pickup options Isaac has a custom guitar with a wacky custom bridge its sort of like a floyd rose but it has a huge lip just watch the live performance at the reading/leeds you will see it it's nuts but yeah you wont really obtain a similar sound by simply bending
