It's not too hard, you just need some speed on the fingers.  This is the album version
let you know.  The live version has some extra notes in there, but i just did the album one.

NOTE: If you watch the live version of SMA on the Live from Norva dvd video, he plays
else than what i have tabbed for the verse. I couldn't figure it out, cuz where he holds
fingers, it doesn't sound right when i do it.  My tab still works, but if anyone knows 
he REALLY plays there, please tab it. THX
