The rhythm on this part can be tricky (and tabbing rhythm is like telling a woman what 
feeling)

This part is actually played with a fretless on the album. Live, I think Justin plays 
whole shebang with a fretless.

This part is played with a bass whammy, but I've tabbed it out for those who don't have 
(I don't and this sounds good enough).
Also with distortion.

Now Brian, let's do what's called "The Evalutaion-Sandwhich" where I say some good about you, then tell you where you need improvement, and end with something good:
- You needed time signatures everywhere, 8 different time sig.'s are used in this song!
- It was good with the whammy pedal-detail, good observation
- You have smelly dog-farts, and some of the part are a bit off
...guess that's 3 stars and a tribute to Stewie!

- Time signatures are unnecessary for this tab because I've included timestamps and how many times to repeat each part (except the endless open Ds)
- Which parts are off? I would love to see your tab.
