*1
I play it like this, it sounds wonderful, but you should see the video, the oneswith the * under them are kind of fast ghost notes that are strung upwards, youwill understand when you see the video.

Here^ he starts to sing the second time he plays it (^ repeat from here until you come to chords) ----------------------------------(text: ”Freak out”)
----------------------------------(text: ”and give in” always ends this way:|------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------|-11~~--11---11-----10--10---10--10--------|-x-----0----0------11--11---11--11--------|-9~~---9----9------9---9----9---9---------|-------10---10-----0---0----0---0---------(text:”It doesn’t matter what you be live in)
Continue the figures over, the rest of the lyrics you can look up at blamo.org or someplace similer. Strum the chords as you hear them in the song C G So I am told D A C G Who wants Honey D A C G As long as there is some money D A C G Who wants that Honey Continue to next verse from the repeating section. After the second chorus: ” who wants honey” Comes the "Let me out" riff. (You should also hear the song to time the right strumming pattern. E D A C G Let, Let me out E D A C G Let, Let me out E D A C G Let, Let me out E D A C G Let, Let me out After that there is a solo, which is hard, I only do something similar, see the video, and you will see that there are a kind of pattern like this:
E-0-0--0-0--0-0--0--0--0-0--0--0--0-0--0--0--0--0--0--------------B-9p11-9p11-9p11-9--11-0-0--0--0--0-0--0--0--0--0--0--------------G-0-0--0-0--0-0--0--0--9-11-11-11-9/11-11-11/13-13/14~~~----------D-0-0--0-0--0-0--0--0--0-0--0--0--0-0--0--0--0--0--0--------------A-0-0--0-0--0-0--0--0--0-0--0--0—-7/9—-9--9/-11-11/12~~~----------E-0-0--0-0--0-0--0--0--0-0--0--0--0-0--0--0---0--0-0--------------

Then do the same pull-off beginning, and end with sliding down and up with thesame octave-pattern. And end with: |-----------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------|-11--11---11-----10--10---10--10---------|-x---0----0------11--11---11--11---------|-9---9----9------9---9----9---9----------|-----10---10-----0---0----0---0----------
Back to chord progression and chorus.End with this two times:|--------------------------|--------------------------|11~~---11/13---13/14-13~~-|X------X-------X------x---|9~~----9/11----11/13-11~~-|0------0------(0)-----0---
and last finish: (wrong strumming pattern, but right places to hold, Listen to the song;)
