Sky High McKay by Therapy?

This is on the Teethgrinder single and the Japanese issue of the Nurse album.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Main riff
---------

 |D-C-D-F---D-C-D-|G#G-F-G---F-D-C-|D-C-D-F---D-C-D--------------------|
                                                    |G#G-F-G---F-D-C---|

Unfortunately, if you are in standard tuning this can't be played low down
because you can't get the low D and C.  So, there are three ways to fix
this.

1) raise the last D and C:

 |D-C-D-F---D-C-D-|G#G-F-G---F-D-C-|D-C-D-F---D-C-D-|------------D-C-|
                                                    |G#G-F-G---F-----|

2) play the whole thing one octave up on the guitar (this doesn't help
   the bass player of course)

3) tune your guitar down four steps to C (or at least, the bottom four
   strings).

Method 1:

E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
G|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
D|------3---------|6-5-3-5---3-----|------3---------|----------------|
A|5-3-5-----5-3-5-|------------5-3-|5-3-5-----5-3-5-|------------5-3-|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|4-3-1-3---1-----|

Method 2:

E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
G|------A---------|D-C-A-C---A-----|------A---------|----------------|
D|C-A-C-----C-A-C-|------------C-A-|C-A-C-----C-A-C-|----------------|
A|----------------|----------------|----------------|B-A-8-A---8-----|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|------------A-8-|

Method 3:

 C|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
 G|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
D#|------2---------|5-4-2-4---2-----|------2---------|----------------|
Bb|4-2-4-----4-2-4-|------------4-2-|4-2-4-----4-2-4-|----------------|
 F|----------------|----------------|----------------|3-2-0-2---0-----|
 C|----------------|----------------|----------------|------------2-0-|

So, the bass plays it once, then the guitar joins in and plays it twice
(with more bends the second time round), and then the guitar moves to
an octave higher plus squeals.  (You can use method 1 for the lower
part and method 2 for the octave up)

Then:

  E5/B                              A5  Bb5 B5  C5   C#D5
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B|---some sort of twiddling here---|----------------|----------------|
G|9---------------|----------------|2---3---4---5---|6-7-------------|
D|9---------------|----------------|2---3---4---5---|6-7-------------|
A|7---------------|----------------|0---1---2---3---|4-5-------------|
E|7---------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

Repeat: E5 B5

Back to the bass doing the main riff which is does twice, and then
it finishes on a D.
