NOTE: Guitar L plays pretty much the same CHORUS RIFF as Guitar R
 but without the high G note. It also plays the same chord shape
 during the verses, but much more spare, with lots of silence and
 choppy, rhythmic muting. Listen in order to get it down, but once
 you've learned the Guitar R part I tabbed out, Guitar L will make
 sense and be very easy.

Back to Guitar R:
Verse 2 has a similar spare guitar part as Verse 1, but with some
 depressed whammy bar overdubs and more silence. Listen to get it
 "exact." Then play the CHORUS RIFF again before the:

BRIDGE RIFF: Feedback is overdubbed in the center while both guitars
 lightly play these two chords.

For a few measures after this there's more feedback, percussive muting,
 quick slides, tremolo bar noises, etc.  Again, listen to the song to
 get the idea and it's best to improvise your own noises.

That's it. Basically, once you learn the chord shapes to the INTRO/CHORUS
 RIFF you have got the entire song, pretty much.  It's mostly about leaving
 space, making percussive noises, etc. due to the nature of the Dub
 Reggae-informed production. It's actually a very non-rock way of playing
 the guitar, so if you know how to play Funk, Jazz, and Reggae, you're
 going to have a much easier time playing this. Please feel free to leave
 comments, corrections, quesitons, and requests. Cheers!
