This is Dave's (lead) part from "Broken China", a b-side from their upcoming album Omni. 
Personally, for me, it's one of the best b-sides I'll ever hear.


INTRO: crazy ass pitch shifting (from a Pitch Pirate)

Tap the fifth fret with your left hand

you have some of the stuff sounding like it works, but then there's some spots that aren't quite pitch perfect...

verse and chorus are for the most part correct, but t4 instead of t5 sounds correct. solo: instead of 3-5-3-5, it should be 2-4-2-4.

pretty good tab though. it's definitely not easy to tab out a song Dave plays on without having a live video to compare with.

and a reminder to those who wanna have a go at this song: keep your compressor on at all times! it also seems like there's a bit of delay going on just before the break, too.
