Jetplane Landing - Writing The Ways Down tab

Great song great band, pity there aren't more tabs up!

I play it drop D becasue it makes the chorus sound better, more bassey, but you don't have to

Verse 1

The fist two chords are strummed and the last one picked, I can't tell if its the 11 on 
D or 9 on the A for the last note of the run down, but either sounds fine

Asus2 Esus2 C#m/F#--0-------7----------------------------------------|--0-------7------9----9----------------------------|--2-------9-------9-----9-------------<5>- <------| this harmonic just before--2-------9--------11-----11-----------------------| the chorus--0-------7----9---(9)----(9)-etc.-----------------|---------------------------------------------------|
Chorus all palm muted. Another guitar does some distorted stuf based around this
"Oh father make me....."-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|-4-4-4-4--2-2----7-7-7-7--2-4--------|-4-4-4-4--2-2----7-7-7-7--2-4--------|-4-4-4-4--2-2----7-7-7-7--2-4--------|
Verse 2 Same chords as before for guitar 1, the second guitar does some picking around the then there is a riff that goes something like this over the C#m/F#
--12-------9--------|-----12-9-----------|--------------11----| X2--------------------|--------------------|--------------------|
Chorus 2 Same again Breakdown Part 1 "There is no profit in this isolation...."
-----------------------------------7---|-----------------------------------7---|-----------------------------------8---| Plenty of times----------9---9-9-9-9-9---------9--9---|---/4--7----------------/4----7--------|---------------------------------------|
Part 2
Guitar 1--------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|-9/11--11/14--14/16-------------------|--------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
Guitar 2------------------|------------------|After the last chord there is often just noise, which you------------------|can get by struming the open strings--4---2----7---9--|--4---2----7---9--|--4---2----7---9--|
Both guitars end the breakdown with--------------------|--------------------|--11-11-11-11-11-9--|--------------------|--9--9--9--9--9--7--|--------------------|
Final chorus Goes like this
-----------------------------------------------------------------------|---------------------------------------14--13--12-11----14--13--12-11--|--11-11-11-11--9-9---6-6-6-6--9-11--11---11--11-------11--11--11-------|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|--9--9--9--9---7-7---4-4-4-4--7-9--------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------14--13--12-11----14--13--12-11-|--11-11-11-11--13-13---6-6-6-6--9-11--11---11--11-------11--11--11------|------------------------------------------------------------------------|--9--9--9--9---11-11---4-4-4-4--7-9-------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
The last couple of times there is something else on guitar 2 over the kast 2 octaves might be, but its pretty quite so I can't tell 100%
B----14p13p12p11----|G-11----------------|
and that is the end. Cheers James
