Play Chorus through again a bunch of times. Sometimes Jade swaps the 
Dsus2 with a low D5 (the first chord in the second verse). Listen to 
the song and you'll hear when.

Beginning of the Bridge:
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------- 
G|--10----9----8----7--------------------------------------------------- 
D|---x----x----x----x--------------------------------------------------- 
A|---8----7----6----5--------------------------------------------------- 
E|---0----0----0----0---------------------------------------------------

Clean bit with some strange effect:
E|-5---5---6---6---3---3---5---5---1---1---3---3------------1---1-------
B|---6-------6-------5-------6-------3-------5-----5---5------3---------
G|---------------------------------------------------6------------------
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------

Then this bit comes in over the top (w/distortion)
E|-------------------------------------------------------------|--------
B|-------------------------------------------------------------|--------
G|-14-14-14-12-12-12-15-15-15-10-10-10-14-14-14-12-12-12-9-9-9-|10-10-10

E|-------------------------------------------------------------|--------
                                                   play this 1st time
E|-----------------|----------------------------------------------------
B|-----------------|----------------------------------------------------
G|-7-7--7-7--7-7-7-|----------------------------------------(10-12-9)---
D|-x-x--x-x--x-x-x-|-7h8p7-5h7p5-3--3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5h6p5-0---(x--x--x)---
A|-5-5--5-5--5-5-5-|-7h8p7-5h7p5-3--3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5h6p5-0---(8--10-7)---
E|-----------------|-7h8p7-5h7p5-3--3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5h6p5-0---------------
Play the bit in brackets second time only

Then it goes back to a similar thing to the intro with the bass and 
a D note being held at the 15th fret on the b string.

Last bit:
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------10----
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------13b15- 
G|--10-10-10-10-10-10----12--12--12--12--12----14--14--14--14--14-------- 
D|---x--x--x--x--x--x-----x---x---x---x---x-----x---x---x---x---x-------- 
A|---8--8--8--8--8--8----10--10--10--10--10----12--12--12--12--12--------
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Then repeat the chorus another bunch of times and that should be it. 
This song is certainly no disappointment.

Thanks goes to the author of the other Great Disappointment tab, I used his
stuff for the verses.

for anyone who is curious the fact i wrote the string tunings incorrectly doesn't matter, i just had the tab layout like that beforehand.

secondly, the tab has to be in a drop D tuning otherwise you can't get the low D note used in the bridge.

yeah this song is definately played half step down with the low E string tuned to C#. listen to the song and try to tell me otherwise.
