REGGAE SECTION
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/b/built-to-spill/75975.html ]
Before the reggae bit kicks in, play the below chord sequence twice, using loose 
Then kick in with a reggae feel, using up-strokes and lots of fret-hand muting.

     Dmin     Bb       A
    ///////  ///////  ///////////////
e|-5--------6--------5--------------------------------------|
B|-6--------6--------5--------------------------------------|
G|-7--------7--------6--------------------------------------|
D|-7--------8--------7--------------------------------------|
A|-5--------8--------7--------------------------------------|
E|----------6--------5--------------------------------------|

After the signing finishes, the soloing continues over the following:

  Dmin     C         Play 8 times Gmin        Amin    Play 4 times
    ///////  ///////                 ///////  ///////
e|-5--------3-----------------------3--------5-----------|
B|-6--------5-----------------------3--------5-----------|
G|-7--------5-----------------------3--------5-----------|
D|-7--------5-----------------------5--------7-----------|
A|-5--------3-----------------------5--------7-----------|
E|----------------------------------3--------5-----------|

As for the solos, there’s way too much to try and tab out!! Try F# Phrygian for the main 
of the song, and D Minor for the reggae section.
