I don't think I've got the timing right above, so you'll have to listen
real closely.  Richard's part goes for a beat or a part of a beat before
Tom's.  Most of the song is this riff.  The second solo (jam) is over
that.

Little scale part:


[Tom]

  Play (x3)                  last time
e|--------------10-8-7------|-----10-8-7-------------|
B|------7-8-10-7------10-8-7|-7-8--------10-8-7------|
G|--sl/9--------------------|--------------------9-7-|
D|--------------------------|------------------------|
A|--------------------------|------------------------|
E|--------------------------|------------------------|


[Richard]

Em     C     Am     Am


I miss remember the chords under this scale, so check them.

Then the Life in the hive part (listen to vocal):

|D    C|, with someone playing notes from the D mixolydian scale (Tom?),

ended with Gmaj7 chord and the following riff (Tom?):


[Tom]

e|------------8-p-7--------------------------|
B|------------------7------------------------|
G|--------------------7----------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------|

The first solo (Tom) is a set of three scales with pauses in between, played
with alone, each in D mixolydian.  The first starts on 15th fret D on the
B string and ends on 9th fret F# on the A string.  It covers all notes in
between.  The second starts on 10th fret A on the B string and goes to
5th fret D on the A string (then slides to 9th fret F#).  Listen closely to
the song to catch the repeats.  I don't have a guitar here, so I can't
check it to be sure and can't exactly remember what to do here.

The third part is:

[Tom]
                                                      v
e|-----19-19-19-19-17-15-17-19-17-15-17-19-17-15-17---22----|
B|----------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

("v" indicates staccato with pause)


[Tom]

e|------------8-p-7--------------------------|
B|------------------7------------------------|
G|--------------------7----------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------|


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

Second solo is over the main riff and is in D mixolydian. It starts slowly
and builds to a massive climax. The solo is one massive improve Tom goes
pretty crazy through this part. Afterwards there are some chords, but I
can't remember what they are nothing complicated, however.

Next time just say it's in G Major, some of these idiots don't know what D Mixolydian implies, others may think it's A Maj D Maj E minor.
You're listening to the studio version here, but have you ever seen them live? Tom doesn't always play lead, on this song Richard plays the leads until the end of the 3rd chorus. As for de-tuning, have you ever heard their cover of SATISFACTION????? They do employ de-tuning as a technique, just not as alternate open chord tuning.....
