Once again greetings! I'm back with another complete tab. I figured
out this song the same way I did "Wish You Were Here". It's almost 
impossible to figure out all the aspects of this song without hearing 
a live performance, because certain parts during the verse that are 
almost impossible to hear on the cd. So many people, in their tabs, 
say there isn't much guitar during the verse, so they don't put 
anything but that. 'Tis just an excuse for laziness! But I am here to
give you the most complete and accurate tabs that I can. Remember you
can always e-mail me with questions, comments, and or anything else. 
So, let's see, Pardon Me... Well Shall we begin? Mike again uses 
standard tuning low to high: (E A D G B E) for this song as well. He 
also uses a number of effects and a very nifty technique called volume
swelling. Well anyways, he uses delay, echo, and some phaser. Well 
let's break down the song.

A. Intro

In the intro Mike uses the combination of delay, echo, phaser, and 
volume swells. This I must add gives off an amazing sound that is 
heaven to the ears! I will use this symbol ( ^ ) to repesent the 
volume swells. But anyways he plays the intro like this:

|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^--6^--|
|--2^--2^--2^--2^------|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^------|
|------5^------5^------|

|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^--6^--|
|--2^--2^--2^--2^------|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^------|
|------5^------5^------|

|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^--6^--|
|--2^--2^--2^--2^------|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^------|
|------5^------5^------|

|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^--6^--|
|--2^--2^--2^--2^------|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^------|
|------5^------5^------|

Now for the distortion part of the intro. Mike uses nothing special 
here, just good 'ol distortion. It's played like this:

|---------------------------|
|---------------------------|
|--6-6-6-6-6-6-2-2-2-2-2-2--|
|--6-6-6-6-6-6-2-2-2-2-2-2--|
|--4-4-4-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-0--|
|---------------------------|

|-----------------------------|
|-----------------------------|
|--6-6-6-6-6-6-2-2-2-2-2-2----|
|--6-6-6-6-6-6-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--|
|--4-4-4-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-0-2--|
|--------------------------0--|

|---------------------------|
|---------------------------|
|--6-6-6-6-6-6-2-2-2-2-2-2--|
|--6-6-6-6-6-6-2-2-2-2-2-2--|
|--4-4-4-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-0--|
|---------------------------|

|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|
|--6-6-6-6-6-6-9-9-----------|
|--6-6-6-6-6-6-9-9-9-9--9-9--|
|--4-4-4-4-4-4-7-7-9-9--7-7--|
|------------------7-7--5-5--|

B. Verse

Probably the most controversal part of the song. There's a lot of 
guitar here, and there's even a pick scrape that every doesn't tab out
on their tabs. The pick scrape is at the very end of the verse, and 
it's on the 6th string. The scrape goes down from the pick-up farthest
from the bridge to almost the 12th fret, and lasts just about 4 
seconds. I will represent the pick scrape with this symbol (>>>). The
verse also has delay, echo, phaser, and volume swells just like the
intro. I will represent the sound the delay trails off with by using
the numbers in parenthesis. But anyways here is the verse:

|--------------0^-(0)(0)(0)--0^--0^-(0)(0)(0)-----------------------|
|--7^--7^------4^-(4)(4)(4)--3^--4^-(4)(4)(4)--4^-------------------|
|--4^--4^--6^----------------2^----------------x^-------------------|
|--6^--6^--5^----------------0^----------------x^-------------------|
|------7^--6^----------------------------------2^-------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------->>>>>>>>>>>>>>>--|

C. Pre-Chorus

The Pre-Chorus is just done with heavy distortion. Played like this:

|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|
|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|
|--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--|
|--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--|
|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|
|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|

--------------------------------------2-0-0-2-0-0--|

Then you return to the verse. Following the second verse is the 
second chorus. 

E. Bridge

Now the bridge is very similar to the intro of the song. There's only 
one small difference. The bridge is played like so:

|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^--6^--|
|--2^--2^--2^--2^------|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^------|
|------5^------5^------|

|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^--6^--|
|--2^--2^--2^--2^------|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^------|
|------5^------5^------|

|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--0^--0^--0^--0^--0^--|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^--6^--|
|--2^--2^--2^--2^------|
|--4^--4^--4^--4^------|
|------5^------5^------|

|--0^--0^--0^--0^-(0)(0)(0)(0)(0)(0)(0)(0)--|
|--0^--0^--0^--0^-(0)(0)(0)(0)(0)(0)(0)(0)--|
|--4^--4^--4^--6^-(6)(6)(6)(6)(6)(6)(6)(6)--|
|--2^--2^--2^-------------------------------|
|--4^--4^--4^-------------------------------|
|------5^-----------------------------------|

Well that's it! Now you know "Pardon Me"! My next tab will be "Drive"
