Tune all guitars 1 step down.

I love this song. Dunno why. Anyways, this tab is the way my aunt and I figured it out;
it sounds a lot better than most of the tab I’ve seen. There are slight variations for
each time the main riffs are played, but it’s usually an extra hammer-on, bend, or a slide.
I’m sure you can improvise them. There are also a few fills in the background, improvise.
Use heavy distortion and a pitch shifter.

Intro/Verse: G5 F#5 Em G5 F#5 Em C5

Main Riff 1:

Main Riff 3: (replace this with riff1 for intro; use as third riff in the first verse)
d|---------------------------------|
A|--8-10-10b-10b-10br-8h10-8~~~~~--|
F|---------------------------------|
C|---------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|

Main Riff 4:
d|------------------|
A|------------------|
F|--0h5h7-0-4-2b-0--|
C|------------------|
G|------------------|
D|------------------|

Chorus: D5 C#5 C5 (pick each note in the C5)

Bridge: (clean tone) G C Em

Solo: I’m still working on the solo. (The next version will be better)

A suggestion: During the chorus), Lars does what I call the 
“hi-hat stomp” (just after the ‘musharainabemadumb-da?’). I like to pick the D5 harder
and then mute the strings (staccato) to match the drums. In other words:

    D5              >  >  >  > C#5  C5
d|--------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|
F|--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7x-7x-7x-7x-6------5|
C|--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7x-7x-7x-7x-6----5--| etc.
G|--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5x-5x-5x-5x-4--3----|
D|--------------------------------------|
Musharainabemadumb-da!             Whack for…


Enjoy!
