Play all through the verse sections.

Bridge (2 parts)

Part 1 (Mute d string with index finger used to play the seventh fret on
the a) For the first bar you play one chord per beat.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--9--9--9--9--99999--99999-------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--7--7--7--7--77777--77777-------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Part 2:

C#5, A5, E5, B5, The B5 and C5 are Passing tones used to go back to the C#.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--6-------------9----------------------------------------------------------|
D|--6------7------9------9------9-10-----------------------------------------|
A|--4------7------7------9------9-10-----------------------------------------|
E|---------5-------------7------7-8------------------------------------------|

After you play this twice, play a B5 during the "conservative say" part.

Chorus Part 1

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--9--9---9-11s13--13--13---13--13s14s13--11--9--------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--7--7---7--9s11--11--11---11--11s12s11---9--7--------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus Part 2

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--11-11--11-9--7-7--11s9--9--6--4------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--9--9---9--7--5-5---9s7--7--4--2------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Let the B octave ring then go back into verse.

Last chorus, this plays over the octaves.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------12----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--14b(16)------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

To find the timing listen to the record, it's pretty simple.

Solo:  This part is played w/phaser, play twice.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--7s14--11-12--7-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--5s12--9--10--5--5p0-7p0--------------------------------------------------|

First 4 unison bends are double bends.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--12-------9-------10------5-----3---7-------------------------------------|
G|--14b(16)--11(13)--12(14)--7(9)--5(7)9(11)---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|



Not so sure about this part because it's a bit fast, but if you
just mess around in E minor pentatonic you should get a similar sound.

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-15p12---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------14p12-14p12----12-14p12-------------------------12h14p12---12h14p12-|
D|-------------------14----------14-12-14p12----12h14-14----------14---------|
A|-------------------------------------------14------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-12h14-14b(16)-------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

End with intro.

This is mostly right, not convinced about the end of the solo though, enjoy learning the song. :)
