As you can see, it's quite an unorthodox song...it is TUNED DOWN A QUARTER STEP
(or 50 cents, or half a fret, however you want to say it) and it adds extra
measures here and there.  I'll do my best to notate the structure of the song,
but you'll have to listen closely to the song to fully understand it.  The tabs
written here should give you a good idea of what to play, if not how to play it.
It's in the key of C Major, in case you were wondering...

There are two parts tabbed out here...one is the lead guitar, and the other is
tabbed out for a rhythm guitar, although it is probably a bass guitar.  The 
rhythm parts (all two riffs of them) are surrounded by r's, in case you were
wondering. During the extra beat, the rhythm guitar just plays on the open G and
D strings.  The timing is odd, but listen through it a few times and you'll get
it.  Both parts are played with a heavy delay, strong chorus, and probably some 
other crazy effects that I don't have.  It all sounds very smooth and relaxing.


      h - hammer on
      p - pull off
      / - slide up
      \ - slide down
      T - tremolo pick
      (8) - optional note



  this is the often-repeated verse riff           the lead starts in with this

Despite the constant tremors and shakes in the actual song, the who thing is quite easy to play... Great tab.
