Difficulty: Intermediate

I had trouble figuring out this song, but managed to get down most parts of this song. 
tab DOES NOT include the solo because I mainly improvise on it as it is basic scales in 
just get yourself a wah pedal and have fun.

This is my first tab so this tab is far from perfect or anywhere close to the real 
but I play by ear, so this is what I managed to figure out, and it sounds pretty damn close.

Not every part of the song is here just bits and pieces that I learned. But if you can 
this I think you can get the rest of the song on your own!!

Enjoy, and please leave comments!


Key:
^ = slight note bend
     ^^ = full bend
     ~ = vibrato
     / = slide
	p= pull off
	h= hammer on

                         Repeat from Can't afford to lose part w/o the
               extra part in the middle part below and transition into this

Chorus
These are just the chords. Listen to the song to get a feel for how they're played
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--15--14--13---10-10--8---10----------------------------------------|
G|--16--15--14---11-11--9---11---(2x)---------------------------------|
D|--17--16--15---12-12--10--12----------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Middle Part
Right after the solo where the drum beat breaks down at about 4:58. When done, repeat 
part again
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--8p5---5-8p5---5-8p5---5-8p5---5-(2x)--9p6---6-9p6---6-9p6---6-9p6-|
D|------7-------7-------7-------7-------------7-------7-------7-------|

D|-7-------7-------7-------7-------7--|-------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------|-------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------|-------------------------------|

With the second part of the riff above, Homme sometimes adds a note in that riff. You 
change it up from time to time.

e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|---------7---------------7------------------------|
G|-9p6---6---6---6-9p6---6---6---6-9p6--------------|
D|-----7-------7-------7-------7-------7------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------|

Somewhere in that middle part at about 5:22 that little riff is as follows
e|--------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------|
G|-12p9----9-12p9----9-12p9----9-12p9----(2x)-|
D|------10--------10--------10--------10------|
A|--------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------|

Then...

e|--------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------|
G|-11p8----8-11p8----8-11p8----8-11p8----(2x)-|
D|------9---------9---------9---------9-------|
A|--------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------|

And finally the ending, a great transition into the end of the song. The highlight of 
song for me.
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------13----10------------13---10--|
G|---------------------------------------0-----0-------------0----0---|
D|-3-2-0---0-2-3p2p0--5-3-2-0-7-5--------13----10--11-10-8---13---10--|

It's in the wrong tuning. He tunes the low E string down to an A.

Actually scratch that. Yours sounds right.
