Notes: You really need a 5 or 6 string for this song but there are 3 ways to
       play it. You can use a 5 or 6 string and save yourself the trouble of
       worrying about the lower notes. You can also play it in standard 
       tuning or you can also tune your E down 1/2 a step.

Terms: Percussive pause - The act of hitting one of your strings in a 
       "percussive manner" i.e. not playing an actal note, just kind of 
       hitting the string. Most of the time this is marked by an "X" in most 
       tab books.
       
       Riding the strings - Take the current note you are on, and slide up 
       that string till you reach the note that is just ABOVE the fret.

Solo - Hold D
Notes: I'm not totally sure how many notes are in the solo. No matter, 
nothing changes in that part as it is. So, just play the rythm. After the 
solo is done, Dave does his Vocal solo. As he does this, Nick hits the High 
Hat 16 times (i.e. Hold for 16), you hear a Drum Roll and David slides up 
and down the bass neck. There is a sudden stop/percussive pause and then the 
bass drum hits begin.
