Modest Mouse - Whale Song tab

Artist: Modest Mouse
Song: Whale Song
Album: Autumn Beds single (I think maybe on multiple albums)
Tuning: EADGBe

All the tabs for this song sucked, and I really wanted to learn it, so I 
used tabs that had pieces and tried to learn it by ear, which is something 
I've never done before, and it sounded good to me.  Here's my version of 
the song.  Some parts are different, but it still sounds cool.

/=slide
b=bend
any thing else just listen for.
