Reuben - Missing Fingers tab

This wasn't tabbed by me, but I thought I'd submit it because there's no other tabs for
song. Full credit to Aidan O'Brien for tabbing this.

For simplicity's sake I've written it down as being in standard drop D, but remember
as with most Reuben tunes it's actually a semitone down from that. Any
threats by e-mail or on this here board. One day we'll actually get the fansite back up 
have a place for all these...

The slide up at the end isn't necessarily from fret four to fret 16, it's just a random up and back down again, with the last chord actually being the first chord of the Slide, then straight into "Tourettes...". Chorus

The palm muted chords there are very heavily palm muted so it almost sounds like regular strings. They're done quite loosely with up/down strokes rather than all down, so its of a precision thing and more just a lead into the next time round.

Note the open string on every other double - this is the only time it happens.

The next bit has huge messy chords that I can't work out. Ideas are welcome. I came up a couple, but I hate posting stuff I know is wrong, so I'd rather leave it for now, cos ideas sounded pretty crap anyway. Let's skip to the 'so much for that' section:
