3. Undisclosed Desires
If you know how to slap, this should be a pretty easy song.
The Bass only plays on the chorus and the third verse, I know the other tabs show that 
plays on the whole song, but if you look for a live performance of this song you'll see 
Chris only plays in the chorus and the third verse.

Chorus:
G|--------5--------------7h8-8------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------5------------8---|
A|-3--3-3---3---3/6--6-6------------------------------------|

Play the whole chorus twice in each chorus.

A|-6--6-6---6----------------------------------| x2
E|-----------------------3--3-3---3------------|

Olay again the chorus, don't play in the outro, song is over.
