This song is one of the best from Doolittle, the guitar is essentialy some heavy palm
muting, then some cool barre chords with some guitar riffs in between. Its not too 
to play and sounds great.

Sounds best with a little distortion.

I think that it's
e-|-----------------------------------------|--|
b-|----------------9brb-----9h11------------|--|
g-|----------5------------------------------|--|
d-|-------6---------------------------------|--|
a-|-----------------------------------------|--|
e-|-----------------------------------------|--|
instead of:
e-|-----------------------------------------|--|
b-|----------------9brb-----9h11------------|--|
g-|----------6------------------------------|--|
d-|-------5---------------------------------|--|
a-|-----------------------------------------|--|
e-|-----------------------------------------|--|

That's what it sounds like to me at least. I could be wrong.

The only tab of this that has the nuances on the chords. 5 stars.

I think this:
Guitar 2
e-|----------------------------|--|
b-|------12/10-----------------|--|
g-|--------------11--10--------|--|
d-|----------------------------|--|
a-|----------------------------|--|
e-|----------------------------|--|
Is this:
Guitar 2
e-|----------------------------|--|
b-|------12-11-----------------|--|
g-|--------------11--10--------|--|
d-|----------------------------|--|
a-|----------------------------|--|
e-|----------------------------|--|

Doesn't sound like he's going down to the A on the b-string to me.
