There are two guitars playing at the beginning of the song.  This is the 

basic riff from the guitar in the left speaker.  The right guitar is the 

same, but perhaps with more percussive noise.  Also, the second time this 

riff is played it is a little different, but then reverts back to the 

original form for the rest of the song.  Maybe it's just me, but the 

second version sounds like it's just a mistake.


Verse:

  A9                    A9/G
                             v--C# bent up about 1/4
---X--------00-------------------------------||
---X--------/5----5-------2-2^_2-------------||
---X---4\(0)------4--------------4-2--------*||
---5-5------------5------------------2------*||
---X--------------X--------------------------||
---5------------5-5-----3--------------------||
    

 

Bridge:
Here the meter switches to 3/4.  The notation is supposed to resemble 

slash ryhthm notation.  The chord forms are all standard 6th-string-root 

barre chords.

F              G              Am             G

/  / /  / /  |  /  / /  / /  |  /  / /  / /  |  /  / /  / / 

|  | |  | |  |  |  | |  | |  |  |  | |  | |  |  |  | |  | |
'  ---  ---  |  '  ---  ---  |  '  ---  ---  |  '  ---  ---

(back to 4/4)

F    E             F    G

/  / /__/ /  /  |  /  / /__/ /  /
|  | |  | |  |  |  |  | |  | |  |
'  ---  ---  '  |  '  ---  ---  ' 



The ending:
I'll just give the chords since the rhythms are not consistent and the  

duration of each can easily heard on the recording:

     v--sometimes G

          ^-^------------These last two may not be right...
