    Ladies, let me tell you...
    
Bridge/Whatever You Call It
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/a/afghan_whigs/be_sweet_tab.html ]
    (play twice)            (let ring)
e|--1--1--1----0--0--0----0------------------
B|--2--2--2----1--1--1----3------------------  Back into verse...

E|-------------------------------------------
   

The solo is played on the e,B,G strings at around about the 12th fret down to
the 9th?  It's a bit haphazard, and difficult to follow, but using the 
following fingering you should be able to come up with something similar...

E A D G B E
-----------
      1 1 1   9th fr.
-----------
          2  -|              lift/press these fingers at
-----------   |              the appropriate points to get
          3  -|------------- a reasonable version of the solo.
-----------   |              a little futher into the solo, slide
          4  -|              about 4 frets up un the neck (12) - I think!
-----------                  If anyone has a more accurate tab than this, let
                             me know!
-----------

The song proceeds verse/chorus etc.

The end part (best bit IMHO) is :

   (strum pretty loosely - listen to the record, you'll get the idea)
e|-------------1--1--1------5--5--5-------8---8---8-----------
B|-------------2--2--2------6--6--6-------8---8---8-----------
G|-------------3--3--3------7--7--7-------9---9---9-----------
D|-------------3--3--3------7--7--7-------10--10--10----------
A|-------------1--1--1------5--5--5-------10--10--10----------
E|----------------------------------------8---8---8-----------
   
   ...you be sweet,        be sweet,      be sweet...
