Space Monkey by Placebo - Music and lyrics by Placebo and or by respectful band members

First off

I lowered my guitar from E to D#, just so you know. The "s" in between the numbers below
to slide, and when you slide from a number to another, you don't struck the strings
because the sound will play by itself, if you have never done this before, practice with this:

------------------------

SLIDE TUTORIAL

I want you to place your finger on the second row fingerboard on the tickest string you
on your guitar, now i want you to hit the string once while having your finger on the
and slide it to the third row of the fingerboard without hitting it again, what you just
was two sounds in one by hitting the string once. Here's a visual example of what you
done.


D# |--2s3----------|
G# |---------------|
C# |---------------|
F# |---------------|
A# |---------------|
d# |---------------|

Knowing this we may proceed with the tab.

--- INTRO ---

(this part is not played by a guitar, as far as i know it's all computer work there, but
still like playing it with effects that sounds as spinechilling as that.)

--- VERSE 1 ---

(It's often nice to play the verse with powerchords, i've seen people do it all the
But I think the verse on the track doesn't have a powerchord sound to it. I play it as the
way, with distortion but not too much, and I play the 2(13x) softly palm muted, but I
of the palm mute on slides and onces i go back to the 2(13x) I palm mute again)

Jumping to CHORUS part, end of VERSE (no more palm muting, and one suggestion: start
this part softly, and little by little increase the sound by hitting it harder, it makes it
really good.)

--- AROUND THE END ---

Like you let me down before...

(yea, there's this sound right before he says that, it sounds like a guitar whistling
minute 3:14, here is how you do that.)

D# |---------------------------------------------- |
G# |---------------------------------------------- |
C# |---------------------------------------------- |
F# |-11s18---------------------------------------- |
A# |---------------------------------------------- |
d# |---------------------------------------------- |

(For it to sound like a whistle, you have to do it fairly fast.)

I've been here for 2 hours listening to the song and trying to make it a decent tab. My
and eyes hurt so much, so I wont be finishing the last part of the song. I hope you
my tab so far, I might make another tab to show how to play the ending. Thank you.
