---------------INTRO---------------

The opening riff is most likely played on the bass, but it sounds
good on guitar as well:

e|---------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------|D|------11\9-----9\--------2/5---2-4-0---|A|-------------9---------2---------------|E|--7--------7---------0-----------------|
This riff is played underneath the whole song. Guitar 1 comes fades in with this riff:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------|B|-------------------------------------------------------------|G|-------------------------------------------------------------|D|--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4/7--5--4---5-4-----------4--|A|--------------------------------------------------7---5-7----|E|-------------------------------------------------------------|
Guitar 2 random part:
e|-------|B|--6h7--|G|-------|D|-------|A|-------|E|-------|
---------------VERSE--------------- Guitar 2 harmonics riff:
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|G|--4+--4+--4+--4+-4+-------------------------------------------------|D|--------------------3+--3+--3+--3+--4+--4+--4+--4+--3+--3+--5+--5+--|A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------------------| --4+--4+--4+--4+-4+--------------------------------0----------------| --------------------3+--3+--3+--3+--4+--4+--4+--4+-------5+---------| --------------------------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------------------| --4+--4+--4+--4+-4+-------------------------------------------------| --------------------3+--3+--3+--3+--4+--4+--4+--4+--3+--3+--5+--5+--| --------------------------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------------------| --4+--4+--4+--------------------------------------------------------| ---------------3+----4+--5+-----------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------------------------|
Next come this part:
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|B|--6h7-7-6h7-7-/10-7-6----6h7-7-6h7-7-7---6h7-7-6h7-7-/10-7-6-7---|G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
Then the harmonics again: (Press the strings behind the bridge to bend them):
e|-----------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------|G|--4+~------------------------------------|D|-----------3+~----4+~-----5+~-----5+~----|A|-----------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------|
---------------INTERLUDE--------------- ("i step down..as president...")
pm........|e|----------------------------------------------------------------|B|----------------------------------------------------------------|G|--2-0----2-0----------0-----0-2+-----0-2--2-0-------------------|D|------4------4--0-2-4-----4--------4----------4----0--4h5p4-----|A|----------------------------------------------------------------|E|----------------------------------------------------------------|E|----------------------------------------------------------------|
note: the harmonic on fret 2 is that really high pitched noise. there are 2 different ones you can get on second fret, this one can be obtained by plucking it just before fret 2 (fret "1.9"). ---------------OUTRO--------------- A couple of harmonics:
e|-----------------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------------|G|--4+----------0--x-----------------------------------------|D|------3+--4+--------3+--5+--3+---4+--3+---5+--3+--4+--3+---|A|-----------------------------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------------------------|
The outro consists of messing around with these harmonics, and this riff:
e|-------------------------------------------|B|---6h7-7-6h7-7-7---6h7-7-6h7-7-/10-7-6-7---|G|-------------------------------------------|D|-------------------------------------------|A|-------------------------------------------|E|-------------------------------------------|
