  questions and comments there^^^ or on my login at Ultimate Guitar

-- at 00:11  and 00:35  the g and b string sound sparkly like the microphone is up to 
  just let it ring and it will sound like it---
        ( maybe its a double g string and b string guitar)

ok this song was easy for me .. i love it  Snakes and Arrows is awesome

[032010] C

then

[X0201X]

 dont hit the E key throughout the strumming at 12 sec's through out the whole song....

ok

 beginning


(C power cord)strum fast 3 times down-up-down  -listen to the song-!!
(A cord)
(E cord)

 the guitar is acustic   maybe 12 string but it sounds good on my electric amp without overdrive
     (RIFF A1)

          ^^^ repeat this intill 00:35

 now add the b string when you strike the G (above) so on the C cord it should be a 1--
 it should look like
                             -(RIFF 1B)-

  Bass kicks in at  00:59
the bells and ringing bells kick in at 01:06 kinda making the  RIFF driffrent sounding 
more strummin in the A D G B stings- but im still pretty sure its the same

Do RIFF 1B intill 1:21 then

At 02:54 is the solo and all the riffs

 Riff A1 to B1 and in the background agian i think is Riff C
   at the same time for the solo and all ,,you'll figure it out..
      the solo is what matters anyway...
SOLO

   ! do a quick bend on the first note of the solo

           figure it out from the song  it sounds like this
              just listen to the song
                                          by this time it is 3:16^

the background guitars  ( RiFF C and Riff 1b)
 are still going  after the solo the end is just a repeat of RIFF A1
 let the last not a E cord ring out...

have fun..
