I actuelly didn´t get shit out of this tab. The intro doesn´t even make sense.

I'm sorry you feel that way. Let me clarify:

The notes in parentheses are NOT supposed to be strummed, as was noted in the legend at the bottom. Instead, it's a quick slide to that note on the following beat, like a hammer-on. I kept the fret number there because that's the target for the slide. When played, the rhythm's like this:

1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4
r G G r F/G G r F/G G r F G\\ r (G = G#pwr, F = F#pwr, r = rest)
v v v ^ v ^ v v (v = downstrum, ^ = upstrum)

If you meant the slide solo, I tabbed both the octaved version -what you hear on-track- and the version for a single person playing just the lead note from it. Since the octaved version is significantly more difficult to play, I left both to let people choose their poison.

Wasn't expecting it to format like that...

1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4
r G G r F/G G r F/G G r F G\\ r (G = G#pwr, F = F#pwr, r = rest)
v v v ^ v ^ v v (v = downstrum, ^ = upstrum)
