This song is pretty easy to play, I have the actual way its played....and the
simplified version that is basically the same thing. I saw him play it live and
its really easy to play! Im not totally sure but I think he is using slight chorus
and lowered tone. So all of you who have strat or strat style guitars move your
5-way switcher to the 2 position from the top and set the second tone knob from
the top to 4 or 5.

Key:
h -Hammer On
p -Pull Off
x -Muted string
~ -Let ring
T -Thumb
/ -Slide Up
\ -Slide Down
># -5-Way Switcher Up (Towards bridge) this will be followed by a number, the number 
which how many clicks or settings you have to move(down or up).
<# -5-Way Switcher Down (Towards Neck)
