 I do believe that this is the correct way to play it. The previous
tab that I posted was a little off not much. Markus Janczyk
 and HammettFan85@aol.com had e-mailed me on the
tab and gave me a few suggestions on the tab. Also I put alternate
fingerings for the bridge for bettercontrol when playing. I bracketed
the alternate fingerings for you.

  I'm too sure.  And you can also play it from 2nd to 9th on
  G string, and you don't have to worry about hitting such a
  small fret

This tab is pretty close, although i don't know what u were thinking when tabbing the bridge.

i can't be bothered posting the bridge, the verse goes like this, instead of playing 7s you play 0s then the slide goes down to 19, not to 14.
thanx, Nath
