Intro:

d|----------------10-------10-------------------8-----10---|
a|---12---------10----------------12----------8---------12-|

d|-----12--------------13--------|
a|---12----12--12----13---13--13-|
e|-10--------10----11-------11---| x26

These pulloffs are kinda fast, so be ready!

verse 2:
g|----------------------|
d|----------------------|
a|----------------------|
e|---5----------6-------| x12       
b|-3---4p3----4---5p3---|  

----------------------------------------------------
This next part is kinda crazy, so hang in there, and 
be sure to read the little notes i included, or you
won't play the right part at the right time....
----------------------------------------------------

chorus/solo: X1 on this part
except before the solo, and the 
last time on the solo before the bridge,
look at the last little part.

Chorus Variation: x1
Paul plays this the last time before the solo,
and then goes back to the normal part. its 
not really different 'cept the end
g|-----------------------------|

g|-------------------------------|
d|-------------------------------|
a|-5-5-555-----------------------|
e|----------6-5--3-33-333-333-3--| 
b|-------------------------------|

Its like the same cept the last part is an octave lower

Then go back to the normal chorus for
2 more times...
This is where the guitar solo comes in.
Chorus:x2

The last time of the solo/chorus, 
do this. it starts the same, but ends
with a weird slidy hammer on thing
right before the bridge...

e|--------------------------------------------| X1
b|--------------------------------------------|

---------------------------------------------
thats about the end of the craziness, so if 
you followed my directions and read the notes
i included, you should have made it through
fine...
---------------------------------------------


bridge:
First two times if you listen close, he does this,
then the next part.
g|----------------------------12------12-|
d|----12------10-----10------------------|
a|----------8---8--8---8--1010---1010----|
e|-10---10-------------------------------| x2
b|---------------------------------------|

heres the part that everyone thinks he does 4 times,
but he only does it the second 2 if you listen close...
the two parts are extremely similar cept for the
octave note in the first one....
g|----------------------------12------12-|
d|------------10-----10------------------|
a|----12----8---8--8---8--1010---1010----|
e|-10---10-------------------------------| x2
b|---------------------------------------|

now the other part of the bridge, where the congo things come in...
g|------------------------------------------------------------------|
d|---------------------------5--------------------------------------|
a|--5--55-6-8--88--5-----------8-6-5--5-68------5-------------------|
e|--------------------6-66-8---------------------6--5-66-5-6-6-8--5-|x4
b|-----------------------------------------6-66---------------------|

variations. same deal as last time. follow my 
directions!

on the slap part at the end, open the petal up (if ur even using one like i do now)... and also, the bridge can be played this way if you think its easier...
