* It's all here. Shouldn't be too hard to figure out strucutre.

* There is a lot of sliding between chords in this song (including the solo)
  but I'll leave that up to you.

Verse - Guitar 2 
(Nick actually uses different chord fingerings using the D and A string; however, these chords
 are rooted on the same position on the neck, and this tab sounds very close.)

* There is a little hammer-on/pull-of line here but it's buried in the mix and
I'm not sure what Nick plays.
