The Pot
10,000 Days

I am about 99% sure the intro is correct. The key is to get the timing 
right.
When I play it along with the song and with my band it sounds perfect.

0:10
Intro:
G[----5----7----5-----------5----8---5-----8--5-]
D[-0---7-0----0--7-0-0--0-0--7-0---0---7-0---0--]x6
A[----------------------------------------------]
D[----------------------------------------------]
pm:    *         *           *         *

There has been some question to whether the intro riff is played
in this position or all on the D string near the 10th and 12th frets.
If you prefer to play it this way, the TAB is:

G[--------------------------------------------------------------]
D[-0--10-7-0-12--0-10-7-0-0--0--0-10-7-0-13--0-10-7-0-13--0-12--]
A[--------------------------------------------------------------]
D[--------------------------------------------------------------]
pm:      *            *              *            *

0:38

Thats it. Its a very fun song but its pretty tricky. The hardest part
Is the timing in the intro. Im pretty sure this whole tab is right 
except for 
the part at 4:12. Please Rate!
