This song isn't very hard to play, but the solo can be tricky.
I'm sure this tab is 100% correct. E-mail me for questions or corrections.

Guitar 1... same as prechorus

Db|------14h16--------|-------------------------------|
Ab|-14h16-------------|--this-is-the-coolest-fill-in--|
Eb|-------------------|----the-history-of-the-world---|


Towards the end of the song a little quiet lead part starts and
Gradually gets louder, it's basically just these two notes... easy
To figure out...

Eb|----|---|
Bb|-10-|-9-|
Gb|----|---|
Db|--7-|-6-|
Ab|----|---|
Eb|----|---|

And then at the very end you play this

Eb|--------------------|
Bb|-10-10-10-----------|
Gb|----------9-11-9-11-|
Db|--7--7--7-----------|
Ab|----------7--9-7--9-|
Eb|--------------------|

And then you're done. Please rate this song, thanx.

For example, in the prechorus Guitar 1 actually plays:
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-6-6-6--------|
|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-6-6-6-4-4-4-4|
|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-4-4-4-4-4-4-4|
|-----------------------2-2-2-2|
