Verse
---------------------

First, there is one guitar playing this Em chord over and over again.
When the verse starts, it sounds like the 9th fret on the G-string
is hit while half-muted.
e|-7--|
B|-8--|
G|-9--|
D|-9--|
A|-7--|
E|----|

Then, after two 'bars', a tremolo-y, or wah-wah sounding guitar and another
guitar start to follow the bass notes:
e|-12---10----8----7--|
B|-12---10----8----7--|
G|-12---11----9----8--|
D|-14---12----10---9--|
A|-14---12----10---9--|
E|-12---10----8----7--|

And
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-9~---7~----5~---4~--------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

------------------
Chorus 1
------------------
The chorus basically follows the intro-riff again. The same chords as in the
verse can be used under this.

------------------
Verse 2
------------------
The same as verse 1, but the Em chord is left out the second time. I guess
you'll notice. Again, the chords are played while another guitar plays
just one or two notes of these chords.

------------------
Chorus 2
------------------
Starts the same as chorus 1, but get's an extension somewhere around 2:18
which I believe is played like this:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----(8)---10/12---10\8-----8---10/12---10\8-----8---10/12-----8---10/12----|
G|-(9)---------------------9--------------------9-------------9--------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-10\8-----8---10/12---10\8-----8---10/12-----8---10/12---10\8-----8---10/12|
G|--------9--------------------9-------------9--------------------9----------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------|
B|-10\8-----8---10/12---8~----|
G|--------9-------------------|
D|----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|

Under this extension, these chords fit:
e|-5----8----7----10----8----7-|
B|-5----8----8----10----8----7-|
G|-5----9----9----11----9----8-|
D|-7----10---9----12----10---9-|
A|-7----10---7----12----10---9-|
E|-5----8---------10----8----7-|

----------------
Bridge
----------------
Then there is this awesome bridge which features Josh Homme and some choir-
like part. I think this part only has the chords which are also used in the
verse. 

----------------
Chorus 3/Outro
----------------
Chorus comes in again, while Josh is still singing. After a while, just 
before the chorus vocals stop, an additional guitar starts following the
bass notes of the chords and adds some additional notes. 

Ends with the Em again.
