During the bass solo & verses, alternate between E7 and Amaj, using palm
muting.  As the song progresses, Trey uses less and less muting, so use your
judgment. (for chords that you don't know, see the chord chart at the end)

Chorus

      G                       A
  But who can unlearn all the facts that I've learned
       G                          E7
  As I sat in their chairs and my synapses burned
          G                        A
  And the torture of chalk dust collects on my tongue
  G                             A
  Thoughts follow my vision and dance in the sun
         G                          A
  All my vasoconstrictors they come slowly undone
             G
  Can't this wait till I'm old?
  (use main riff)    
  Can't I live while I'm young?
          
  Can't I live while I'm young?

Guitar solo - 

Solo in blues E for a while, and then here is the ending solo part
