[-0--0-----0-0--0-----0-0--0-0----0-0-3---] 

This next variation in the 2nd verse sounds like a whammy pedal set one octave up. 
Hit the power chord on the 10th fret and let it sustain, rock the pedal forward then back. 
If you dont have a whammy pedal, slide the chord up to the 22nd fret then back again, but only 
the first chord is struck.

I was undecided as to this next riff. Its either the intro riff with a low D pedal note 
or the intro riff simply played an octave lower. I'm choosing the latter the latter

I'm not sure of the distorted riff, as my distorion pedal wasn't to hand, but i think its this

Thankyou so much! When I first saw someone had posted a tab for The Pot, I was thinking... "Please let it not suck!"

You my friend, have done a fantastic job.
