Reuben - Missing Fingers tab

This wasn't tabbed by me, but I thought I'd submit it because there's no other tabs for
song. Full credit to Aidan O'Brien for tabbing this.

For simplicity's sake I've written it down as being in standard drop D, but remember
as with most Reuben tunes it's actually a semitone down from that. Any
threats by e-mail or on this here board. One day we'll actually get the fansite back up 
have a place for all these...

The slide up at the end isn't necessarily from fret four to fret 16, it's just a random
up and back down again, with the last chord actually being the first chord of the
Slide, then straight into "Tourettes...".

The palm muted chords there are very heavily palm muted so it almost sounds like regular
strings. They're done quite loosely with up/down strokes rather than all down, so its
of a precision thing and more just a lead into the next time round.

The next bit has huge messy chords that I can't work out. Ideas are welcome. I came up
a couple, but I hate posting stuff I know is wrong, so I'd rather leave it for now, cos
ideas sounded pretty crap anyway. Let's skip to the 'so much for that' section:
