Duration: 03:29

Tuning: B F# B E G# C# (Tune to drop D and then tune everything three half-steps lower. 
This is to get a low, bassy tone.)


Drum intro, then at 00:10:

C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-10----12------------|F# |------------12---------------|B |---12-------------12-12-12---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---10-10-8-----10------------|F# |------------10---------------|B |---10-------------10-10-10---|
C# |---------------------|G# |---------------------|E |---------------------|B |---5-5-3---3-5-------|F# |---------5-----------|B |---5-----------5-5---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-10-12---------------|F# |-----------------------------|B |---12----------12-12-12-12---|
Repeat these four bars once more and then the verse starts at 00:24:
C# |---------------------------|G# |---------------------------|E |---------------------------|B |---------------------------| etc...F# |---------------------------|B |---12-12-0-10-12-12-0-10---|
At approximately 00:36-00:40, 00:45-00:50, and 00:56-01:00, only 10:s are played:
C# |--------------------------|G# |--------------------------|E |--------------------------|B |--------------------------| etc...F# |--------------------------|B |---10-10-10-10-10-10-10---|
Then there is a chorus (Notice the variation!) at 01:03:
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-10----12------------|F# |------------12---------------|B |---12-------------12-12-12---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---10-10-8-----10------------|F# |------------10---------------|B |---10-------------10-10-10---|
C# |---------------------|G# |---------------------|E |---------------------|B |---5-5-3---3-5-------|F# |---------5-----------|B |---5-----------5-5---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-10------------------| F# |------------12---------------| <<< Variation here!B |---12----------12-12-12-12---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-10----12------------|F# |------------12---------------|B |---12-------------12-12-12---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---10-10-8-----10------------|F# |------------10---------------|B |---10-------------10-10-10---|
C# |---------------------|G# |---------------------|E |---------------------|B |---5-5-3---3-5-------|F# |---------5-----------|B |---5-----------5-5---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-10-12----10----10---|F# |---------------------12------|B |---12----------12------------|
C# |-----------------|G# |-----------------|E |-----------------|B |---12-12-10-12---|F# |-----------------|B |---12------------|
The second verse starts at 01:19 and is the same as the first one with the first '10 break' at 01:31-01:35. When Alison sings the first "Once in a while..." phrase at 01:38, Jamie plays this:
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |-----------------------------|F# |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12---|
...and then another '10 break' immediately after that at 01:40-01:44. Then return to the standard verse riff. Repeat for the second "Once in a while/10 break" thing which is at 01:47. At 01:56 there is another chorus (With another slight variation!):
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-10------------------| <<< Variation here!F# |------------12---------------|B |---12----------12-12-12-12---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---10-10-8-----10------------|F# |------------10---------------|B |---10-------------10-10-10---|
C# |---------------------|G# |---------------------|E |---------------------|B |---5-5-3---3-5-------|F# |---------5-----------|B |---5-----------5-5---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-10----12------------| F# |------------12---------------|B |---12-------------12-12-12---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-10----12------------|F# |------------12---------------|B |---12-------------12-12-12---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---10-10-8-----10------------|F# |------------10---------------|B |---10-------------10-10-10---|
C# |---------------------|G# |---------------------|E |---------------------|B |---5-5-3---3-5-------|F# |---------5-----------|B |---5-----------5-5---|
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-10-12----10----10---|F# |---------------------12------|B |---12----------12------------|
C# |-----------------|G# |-----------------|E |-----------------|B |---12-12-10-12---|F# |-----------------|B |---12------------|
Now, at 02:12, there is a cool noisy part:
C# |--------------------------------|G# |---10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10---|E |---10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10---|B |---10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10---| *2F# |--------------------------------|B |---12-12-0--10-12-12-0--10------|
C# |---------------------------|G# |---------------------------|E |---------------------------|B |---------------------------| *2F# |---------------------------|B |---12-12-0-10-12-12-0-10---|
Repeat this 'cool noisy part' three times until the next chorus at 02:33:
C# |-----------------------------|G# |-----------------------------|E |-----------------------------|B |---12-12-10------------------| <<< Variation here!F# |------------12---------------|B |---12----------12-12-12-12---|
