Standard tuning
/  or  \  --slide.    h --hammer-on.    p --pull-off

			            intro:

D)---------4-----3---------------------
A)---2-----2-----1-----2--0------------
E)---0--------------------------2--3---


                  then when it speeds up with the bass, just before the
verse, play:

G)---9-------9--
D)---9-------9--
A)---7-------7--
E)---0-------0--

                              verse:

D)----------------------------------------------------------

                             chorus:

G)--------------------------------7-------------9-----
D)--------------------------------7-------------9-----
A)--2---5-------------------------5-------------7-----
E)--0---3--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0---------0-0-0----------

                            Repeat from the verse:   then this is played
after the 2nd chorus:

D)--------------------------------------
A)------------5------------------6-\-5--       repeat several times
E)--0-0-0-----3---0-0-0---0-0----4-\-3--

                           then this is played during the vocal:

D)--------------------------------------
A)------------5------------------6-\-5--
E)--0-0-0-----3---0-0-0--0-0-----4-\-3--

D)--------------------------------------
A)------------5------------------7-\-8--

E)--0-0-0-----3-\-2----0-0-0-----2-\-1--

                            then, this is the rhythm before and during the
solo:

D)---------------------------------------------------------
A)-----------------------------2-h-3--2-h-3-p-2-p-0-----4--
E)--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---------------------------------2--

                                    first time play:

D)---------7---6--
A)---------5---4--
E)---0-------------

                                    second time play:

D)----------------
A)---------5---4--             alternate the 1st and 2nd endings during 
E)---0-----3---2---                 the solo.

                                        
                                   for the last part of the solo, play the
verse riff.  then the ending goes something like this:


D)--------------------------------
A)---------5---------------6-\-5--
E)--0-0-0--3--0-0-0--0-0---4-\-3--


D)-----------------------------8-/-9--
A)---------5-------------------6-/-7--

D)--------------------------------
A)---------5---------------6-\-5--
E)--0-0-0--3--0-0-0--0-0---4-\-3--


D)-------9-\-8------------------7--
A)-------7-\-6--------7-/-9-----5--
E)---0------------0---5-/-7--------      


                             the last time, play:

G)---------------------------9-\---
D)-----------------7---------9-\---
A)--------7-/-9----5----7----7-\---
E)---0----5-/-7--------------------

                            I didn't include any palm mutes.  I'm sure you
know when and where to mute.   that's about it.   this song is a workout!
 Have some fun!
