[Main Riffs]
Riff 1 is the same with a different F#m/E at start of 2nd measure. 
The Am/E (Am) is the quick slide or bend to the A note (if playing only 2 strings) or shown
here as a slide to Am.
* below = Double-time (repeat). Messes up the formatting to try to squish another chord in.
Basically, all chords shown are downstrokes on 8 counts/measure, where there's an astericks
below fit in a quick follow-up upstroke (usually only hitting the E and A strings). At the
end of Riffs 1a-c, do this on the last 0-11 (or use 0-x) on E and A strings to make the record
skipping sound, before connecting to a similar pass.

That's not a chick singing this song. Watch the video. You are now officially gay.

I didn't believe the video, or want to believe it. But found their Letterman performance on line. Okay, I correct my statement to "unless you have...and a really gay sounding singer." (PS, I'll still listen imagining Nikki, the bassist, is singing though.) I will update my text if anyone has issues with the actual tabs/chords.

Sorry if I'm being picky, but that Abm should actually be G#m. Technically it's the same, but it helps understand the context (as in the E major scale). Actually, I think that chord is actually E major, seeing as it has no fifth (and if it did, it would more likely be an Emaj7).
