ok i use the tune (c) to do this song i am pretty sure that what john uses 
aswell
its taken me a while to get this song note for note, so i expect it will 
take u awhile aswell, so just have the song playing in the background while 
ur learning it
riff 1

e---------------------------------------------------------------------}

c-----------0-3----0-5-----0-------------0------------)
g-6--4--1---0-3----0-5-----0-------------0------------)
c-----------0-3----0-5-----0-------------0------------)

then a whole bunch of muteing
use a tremolo style of finger picking for the next two stanzas

riff 5
e-------------12-12-12-12----------------------------)
c-------------12-12-12-12----------------------------)
g-------------12-12-12-12----------------------------)
c-12-12-12-12----------------do that 3 times---------)
g-12-12-12-12----------------------------------------)
c-12-12-12-12----------------------------------------)

these are just the frets not the timeing

riff 6

c-12-9-7-5-3--------------------)

c-0--------0-0--0------0-0--0--------0-0--0-------------)
g-0--------0-0--0------0-0--0--------0-0--0-------------)
c-------------------------------------------------------)

now it would take me days to do the timeing exact so i am just going to put 
the cords and u can work out the timeing

riff 8
e--------9------------7-------5-------3------)
c-7-8-7----7-8-7-----------------------------)
g-7-8-7----7-8-7-----------------------------)
c-0-0-0----0-0-0-----------------------------)
g-0-0-0----0-0-0-----------------------------)
c--------------------------------------------)

now u do the same for each of the other cords simialir to the riff 7 as u 
descend just hit the high (e)

riff 9
e---------------------------------------------------------)
c-7p8-7-8-7-8-8-------------------------------------------)
g-7-8-7-8-7-8-8-------------------------------------------)

g-0-0-0-----8-8------------------3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5----------)
c--------------------------------3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5----------)

then it goes off in a little decent solo i am not going to do it , but it 
goes down the finger board similair to riff 2 just before he starts to sing
(dont even understand)

riff 10
e-------------------------------------------------)
c-------------------------------------------------)
g-------------------------------------------------)
c-0-0-8-8-8-8-10-10-3-3-3-3-----------------------)

c-0-0-8-8-8-8-10-10-3-3-3-3-----------------------)

riff11
when this little mellowed bit comes when john says,(dont know why,dont even 
understand)the corus is muted and the higher pitch string are left to take 
over

E-o-o-8-8-8-8-10-10-3-3-3-3----------------------)
c-o-o-8-8-8-8-10-10-3-3-3-3----------------------)

c-o-o-8-8-8-8-10-10-3-3-3-3--)-------------------)

just after the (dont understand ) part it goes decending down the finger 
board
riff 12
e---------------------------------------------------------------)
c-----9p11p99-----7p9p77-----5p7p55------3p5p3-3---22-4---------)
g-----9p11p99-----7p9p77-----5p7p55------3p5p3-3---22-4---------)

g-9-9---------7-7--------5-5---------3-3---------2--------------)
c-9-9---------7-7--------5-5---------3-3---------2--------------)

INTERLUDE JBT ,NAT AND CARLO
riff 13

g-9-9--7-7-5-5-3-3-5-5-----------------------------)
c-9-9--7-7-5-5-3-3-5-5-----------------------------)

the nect little solo once the interlude is over is simialir to riff 3
only it lingers around the 7th and 8th fret for about 4 beats the start the 
decent down the finger board.once u get to the 2nd and first fret, the good 
solo starts
riff 14
