If you want to get the right tone for this song, use reverb, compression, and
chorus.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
VERSE:


For the reggae-style "chucking" sound, mute the strings with the fingering
shown below.

X X Xe|-7--7----9----|G|-7--7----9----|B|-7--7----9----|D|-9--9----10---|A|-9--9----10---|E|--------------|
Just before Joe starts singing, this is usually played:
e|-----|G|-----|B|-----|D|-7/9-|A|-----|E|-----|
The bass also plays this next part, which is divided into two sections. The first is only played a couple times in the song and is followed by the other, which is played throughout most of the non-chorus parts. It's all done in palm mutes.
e|---------------------------|-----------------------------|G|---------------------------|-----------------------------|B|---------------------------|-----------------------------|D|-9---9---9-9---------------|-9---9---9-9-----------------|A|-------------9-9---9---9---|-------------9-9-9---9---9---|E|---------------------------|-----------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------------------------- CHORUS: The chorus riff is just Bm and A chords. The muted part is also done later in the song:
X X Xe|-7---7---5---5---7-7---7---5---5---|G|-7---7---5---5---7-7---7---5---5---|B|-7---7---6---6---7-7---7---6---6---|D|-9---9---7---7---9-9---9---7---7---|A|-9---9---7---7---9-9---9---7---7---|E|-----------------------------------|
This is played over top:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------------------|D|-9---------9-11-9----9----------------12-11-9-11-9----9----7/9-|A|---9-11-12-------------9-11-12--12-----------------12----------|E|---------------------------------------------------------------|
This is a modified version of the above riff played repeatedly near the end of the song:
e|------------------------------------------------------------|G|------------------------------------------------------------|B|------------------------------------------------------------|D|-9--------------------9----------------12-11-9-11-9----9----|A|---9-11-12-11-9---------9-11-12--12-----------------12------|E|----------------10------------------------------------------|
And that's it! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
