"Vasoline" by Stone Temple Pilots
Written by Patrick Sanguily

First, there's a fade-in with feedback (1) which is soon doubled by a guitar doing hammer-ons 
from A to Bb (2) and another guitar does upstrokes on a really weird chord (see "bridge" section WAY below) 
then there's a little descending thing (3) right before you go into the main riff... 

  (1) w/ feedback    (2)                               (3)

"Bridge" section (guitar2 + bass do hammer-on from A to Bb):
(during the intro and bridge) try this:

e|---0---|
B|---3---|
G|---3---|
D|---3---|
A|---0---|
E|-------|

You'll see the look, and you'll see the lies.  You'll eat the lies

B|---3---|
G|---3---|
D|---3---|
A|---0---|
E|-------|
