here is the tab for collective souls song better now

_______________________________________________________________________________

just before the opening riff there is the drum intro and there is also
a palm muted guitar part it is simply this repeated twice

e-----------------------
b-----------------------
g-----------------------
d-----9 9 9 9-----------
a-----9 9 9 9-----------
e-----7-7-7-7-----------

_______________________________________________________________________________

here is the opening riff which is also used in the verses
listen to the song for the exact timing

e--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
b--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
g--------------------9---------------------------------7--7--7-------------------------
d-----9--9--9-----7--9-------7--7--7----9--9--9-----9--7--7--7--7--7--7--7-------------

e-----7--7--7-----5----------5--5--5----7--7--7-----7-----------5--5--5--5-------------

then for the chorus play around with these chords the progression is 
something like this, but first here are the chords
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/c/collective_soul/better_now_tab.html ]
      [B]   [D]   [A]   [G]
e                  5     3
b     4     7      5     3
g     4     7      6     4
d     4     7      7     5
a     2     5      7     5
e                  5     3

B                    D             A        G              A
         let the word out/I gotta get out/oh im feeling better now
         break the news out/i gotta get out/oh im feeling better now

_______________________________________________________________________________

then for the part where they sing "the world starts shaking me down" as far as I can tell 
they just palm mute the drum intro "B" chord from above over and over again
_______________________________________________________________________________

then at the end where the saxophone plays it sounds pretty quiet guitar wise 
but you can play softly here using the chorus riff

_______________________________________________________________________________

so to summarize the song goes like this

drum intro with guitar
opening riff
verse 1 with opening riff
chorus
opening riff
verse 2 with opening riff
chorus
breakdown(the world starts shaking me down) part
opening riff
chorus repeated multiple times
then the saxophone part to fade out the song using the chorus riff
____________________________________________________________________________________

that should about cover it anything i may i have missed you can probably figure out with what ive got here

Have fun!
