Motown Junk Tab

Manic Street Preachers

Quite a few tabs about for this one, but CAN NO-ONE DO THE END OF THE SOLO 
PROPERLY?! Also have motorcycle emptiness where i've worked out all the lead 
now (this includes all the outro, even the stuff he plays while singing) + a 
reasonably good heavenly you love us, both of which i'll tab when i've got time.

Cheers to anyone i've nicked bits off, i've just filled in gaps.

KEY:

b = bend
r = release bend
~ = vibrato
P.M. = palm mute
h = hammer on
/ = slide

INTRO:

been done pretty well before though, but gaps i.e. the end

VERSE:

For lead I play this for the D:
e|-5---5---5-5-5-5---5---5-5---|
B|-7---7---7-7-7-7---5---5-8---|
G|-7---7---7-7-7-7---7---7-7---|
D|-7---7---7-7-7-7---7---7-7---|
A|-5---5---5-5-5-5---5---5-5---|
E|-----------------------------|

And this for the G:
e|-7---7---7-7-7-7---5---5-8---|
B|-8---8---8-8-8-8---8---8-8---|
G|-7---7---7-7-7-7---7---7-7---|
D|-5---5---5-5-5-5---5---5-5---|
A|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|
You could do the D at 10th fret, but I think it sounds like this + my fingers are too big!

for rhythm, RIchey (if he was gonna play at all!) would probably have just done the power
chords at 5th fret A + 3rd fret E to the same rhythm as James

So it goes D X2, G X2, D X2, G x2 then we have....

BRIDGE:

I think both guitars play exactly the same (or one doesn't play)

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/manic_street_preachers/motown_junk_tab.html ]
You can see james doing this on the video for the song, but it is tricky 
to get your thumb on the 10th fret that far up. For Richey, I'd just 
strum D5 at the 5th fret if I were you.

Then a bunch of weird noises, though probably just hit D repeatedly again if you're
lazy like me, we live in urban hell, we destroy rock and roll.
