Foo Fighters - Rope tab

Foo Fighters - "Rope'
From the Album 'Wasting Light'
Standard Tuning
Tabbed by jjhand

I believe I got the solo correct now, from what I can hear from Chris 
Shifflet's guitar. I reworked a couple other riffs using youtube footage.
Thanks to other ug tabs of 'Rope' for a starting point. Please Rate/comment.
