Betterman Tab

   
Tuning Open C - C G C G C E

Listen to the intro, there are parts that need a little palm muting and there
are some dead notes to hit as well as the notes in this tab. 
This is just a basic intro to get you started. After you can play this you'll
be able to get it sounding more like the CD version. 

Intro - 
palm mute a bit

VERSE

John uses a glass slide on his little finger.

-\ indicates slide

This is the basic riff

E-\7-7----\10-10----\5-5----\7-7
C-\7-7----\10-10----\5-5----\7-7
G-\7-7----\10-10----\5-5----\7-7
C-\7-7----\10-10----\5-5----\7-7
G-\7-7----\10-10----\5-5----\7-7
C-\7-7----\10-10----\5-5----\7-7

There are little licks and stuff that he plays but I haven't had time to 
work 'em out.

The Don't want to be a thorn in your side bit is like

E-\3-3-3----\10-10-10----\5-5-5-5-5-5
C-\3-3-3----\10-10-10----\5-5-5-5-5-5
G-\3-3-3----\10-10-10----\5-5-5-5-5-5
C-\3-3-3----\10-10-10----\5-5-5-5-5-5
G-\3-3-3----\10-10-10----\5-5-5-5-5-5
C-\3-3-3----\10-10-10----\5-5-5-5-5-5
