Here is a song by a band known as The All American Rejects. Listen to the recording for 
a sense of time, as tabs are notoriously inefficient at that.

Verse (palm muted):
E||---------------------------------------------------|
B||---------------------------------------------------|
G||---------------------------------------------------|
D||---------------------------------------------------|
A||--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3/--|
E||--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1/--|


--------------------------------------------------------------||
--------------------------------------------------------------||
--------------------------------------------------------------||
--------------------------------------------------------------||
--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12/---8--8--8--8--8--x----------||
--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10/---6--6--6--6--6--x----------|| (x3)

The fourth time through (where the singing fellow states that "You still got it") play this:

E||-----------------------------------------------|
B||-----------------------------------------------|
G||-----------------------------------------------|
D||-----------------------------------------------|
A||--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--|
E||--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|


-------------------------------------------------------||
-------------------------------------------------------||
-------------------------------------------------------||
-------------------------------------------------------||
--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--8--8--8--8--8--8-----||
--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--6--6--6--6--6--6--5--|| (x2)

Then back to the verse riff x3

And right before we get to the chorus the singer says "stop." At this point the guitar, 
as well as all the other instruments, stop. A truly innovative cohesion of lyrics and 
music. When the instruments jump back in, we find ourselves in the...

Chorus:
E||--------------------------|--------------------------|
B||--------------------------|--------------------------|
G||--------------------------|--------------------------|
D||--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|
A||--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|
E||--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--|--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--|

--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--|--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--||
--------------------------|--------------------------||

Wow! That was rocking!
Right after the chorus, we play this for a measure:
E||---------------------------------------------------|
B||---------------------------------------------------|
G||---------------------------------------------------|
D||---------------------------------------------------|
A||--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3---|
E||--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1---|

Then go back to the top and repeat it all with different lyrics, except when you get to 
the chorus you play it three times (without vocals the third)! USA!
So when you get to the last chord of third 3rd playthrough, the guitarist does this to 
transition to the bridge:
E||--------------------------|--------------------------|
B||--------------------------|--------------------------|
G||--3--3-----3--3--3-----3--|--3--3-----3--3--3-----3--|
D||--3--3-----3--3--3-----3--|--3--3-----3--3--3-----3--|
A||--1--1--0--1--1--1--0--1--|--1--1--0--1--1--1--0--1--|
E||--------------------------|--------------------------|

E||----------------------|
B||----------------------|
G||--3---------5---------|
D||--3---------5---------|
A||--1---------3---------|
E||----------------------|

And the bridge:
E||----------------------|--------------------|--------------------|
B||----------------------|--------------------|--------------------|
G||--7--------7----------|--------------------|--3-----------------|
D||--7--------7----------|--3--------3--------|--3-----------------|
A||--5--------5----------|--3--------3--------|--1-----------------|
E||----------------------|--1--------1--------|--------------------|


--------------------|
--------------------|
--7--------5--------|
--7--------5--------|
--5--------3--------|
--------------------|

|----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|
|----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|
|--3---------3---------|----------------------|--2---------2---------|
|--3---------3---------|--3---------3---------|--3---------3---------|
|--1---------1---------|--3---------3---------|--1---------1---------|
|----------------------|--1---------1---------|----------------------|


----------------------|----------------------|----------------------||
----------------------|----------------------|----------------------||
--3---------3---------|--2---------2---------|--5-------------------||
--3---------3---------|--3---------3---------|--5-------------------||
--1---------1---------|--1---------1---------|--3-------------------||
----------------------|----------------------|----------------------||

Then play the chorus all ominous and palm mutey before bust back into the more familiar 
loud version, which you play until the end, substituting that same transition we did 
into the bridge at the very end.

So there you have it. Another classic from America's favorite gang of scoundrel's, the 
All American Rejects.
