e|----12#--11#--9#--7#--6#--7#--6#--4#--2#--4#--0#---------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------4h5p4p2p0----|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

# = tremolo picking

Instead of:

e|-----------------|
B|------------5----|
G|----1---3---3----|
D|---2---4----4----|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|

I think it's:

e|-----------------|
B|------------4----|
G|----1---3---4----|
D|---2---4----4----|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|


I think part of the chords are E - F# - B (or B7)

Great single. It gives me a surf rock feel.
