I´ll appreciate and acknowledge all constructive corrections (please on my email).

6/9/2012 Update. I think it mostly should be played only on two strings. Looking
forward to your comments.


Intro (slightly pulm-muted) 4x by guitar 1
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--999999997-99-99999999---99-------------------------------------------------|
A|--777777775-77-777777778--77-------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After 2nd round of intro guitar 2 plays this, together with wah-pedal
e|--12+-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--12+-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--12+-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--12+-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--12+-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--12+-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

then massive slide with your pick down the guitar-neck (on the 4th and 5th string)


Then RIFF 1 2x (in concert Noodles plays it almost like with tremolo picking):
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--9999-7--9999-10----------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9999-7--9999-10----------------------------------------------------------|
A|--7777-5--7777-8-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

VERSE RIFF (palm-muted, heavy distortion) 4x
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---999999997-99-9999999910--99------------------------------------------------|
A|---777777775-77-777777778---77------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

w/ FILL in the verse riff
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---12----12----12----------------------------------------------------------|
A|---10-12-10-12-10----------------------------------------------------------|
E|------10----10-------------------------------------------------------------|


CHORUS (each chord strumm 8x) 2x
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---9--5-----7--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---7--3--5--5--------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------3-----------------------------------------------------------------|


BRIDGE 2x (with RIFF 1 in the background)
I´m not sure about this, but I´d say Noodles plays this with wah-pedal and tremolo picking:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--0-0-0---0-0-0------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--7b7b5b--7b7b8b-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Then VERSE RIFF with FILL 4x

Then CHORUS 4x


Then VERSE RIFF 4x in the background of the SOLO:
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---12~-12~/-13~-\-12~--13-12-10-9~-/10-9-6-5~----slide back to the 12 and once again--|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Oh take me higher..
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---9--79--79---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---9--79--79---12----12----12----------------------------------------------|
A|---7--57--57---10-12-10-12-10----------------------------------------------|
E|------------------10----10-------------------------------------------------|


than guitar 1 plays the VERSE RIFF and guitar 2 the BRIDGE (both twice)

then FILL twice and back to
CHORUS (4x)

End on the VERSE RIFF (2x) and the
e|-------|
B|-------|
G|---9\--|
D|---9\--|
A|---7\--|
E|-------|

as the last chord

Well, Noodles isn't doing anything with a whammy--at least not a whammy bar. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MACt0VreUBw&feature=related

Dex sometimes plays guitars with whammy bars, but I've never seen him use the bar either.
