palm mutes, followed by using some tremelo on the un-muted chords to get the 'shimmer' effect

strum pattern is fairly easy, so here's the chords.
E|--0--|--0--|--3--|--5--|
B|--3--|--5--|--3--|--5--|
G|--0--|--0--|--0--|--0--|
D|--0--|--4--|--2--|--4--|
A|--2--|--5--|--3--|--5--|
E|--3--|-----|-----|-----|


===solo
(2:21)

technically if you really want to play it like J does, then this is where you
improvise some crazy screaming fuzzed out solo for a couple of minutes.but here's
something that's close enough to what's on the record:

E|-15-15-15-15~--15-15-15~---15-15-15p14---15-15-15p14------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------15b--15*~--12-15-12-15-p12---|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------14-|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------12/13-12--13-12--13-13/15~-|
--------------------------------------12-14-12-14b-12-14----------------------------|
------------------12-10-9---10--12/14-----------------------------------------------|
12b-r-10-12-10-12-------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


----12----12-----12----12-------------------------------------------------------|
-15----15----15--15b---15b~~--15-15-15-13-12-13-12-13b-13b~---------------------|
-----------------------^--------------------------------------------------------|
--------------hold bend^ and slowly release across next few notes, fast picking-|
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


---------------------------------12------17b-r-15h17-14h17-14----14---------|
-15b-r-13\11-----------12-13-15b----15b~----------------------15----15-15~--|
-------------12-14-14b------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

vocals come back in here, with the solo quietly carrying
on underneath, so you can either carry on busting out
rad lead lines, or you can go back to doing the chorus rhythm.
when the vocal line 'not just me threw it away' ends, stick
to the third chord in the chorus chords above until the verse starts.

then after that, play the verse, then the pre-chorus, then end on G. (320033)

voila! hopefully you can now play what is one of Dino's more underrated songs.


|--------------------------------------------------------
