Hands Down Tab

I'm sick of everyone being stupid about this tab.  It's a pretty easy song once
you just practice it for a while.  The into is a little tricky, but just use your
pinky a lot on that 4th fret of the D string.  You'll see what i mean.  Anyway,
this is the real way to play it, if you don't believe me, go to rollingstone.com,
look through their video archives, and there is a video of just chris playing
this song all by himself in a rollingstone.com exclusive video where you can see
that i am right.  have fun and keep bein dashboard fans!

Verse

For the verse, play the first chord of each measure open, then palm mute it until
you change chords again.  The exception is the last chords before you repeat back
to the E chord.  You play both of those open.  Just listen to the song and you'll get it.
