Intro
*Light dist.  You figure out the timing.

Pre-Chorus
*Note: It helps to use more gain here because of the palm muted chords.

p.m.  --      --      --      --      --      --      --

After the music pauses for a moment, throw in a sweet pick-slide, which leads into…

Chorus
*Note:  Heavy gain comes in handy here as well.  The riff during “we’re not doing 
wrong” needs to blend together well, or it won’t sound right.  Also, the G# chord where it 
7th fret on A and D is supposed to be written that way.  I’m not sure exactly what chord
they play there, but the one I put down sounds pretty close.

p.m.  --      --      --      --      --      --      --

This time, don’t pause and do a longer pick slide into the chorus.

Chorus
*Note: This time, play the second half of this riff (the part on the A string) an extra 
during the second “we’re not going to get along.”

p.m.    ----                    -

Bridge
*Note:  This is the part where Nick does his rap-type thing.  You can either play it 
as shown or split it into two guitar parts.  Guitar A would play the rhythm, which would be 
palm muting the chords A5, E5, and D5.  Guitar B would play the single notes shown in between
chords on my tab.  I think WWB plays it all on one guitar, though.

p.m.  -- -- -- - -- -- -   --   --   -   --   --   -   --   --   -   --   --   -

Play that whole thing twice, then a chorus with drums and vocals only, followed by a 
chorus and some we’re not gonna get alongs.  After they say “we’re not gonna get along” 
no music, play the riff behind that one more time.  After that, palm mute a A5 chord three
times fast to end the song.  Enjoy!
