*LISTEN TO SONG BEFORE WHILE OR BEFORE ATTEMPTING, AS TABLATURE
 DOES NOT PORTRAY CORRECT TIMING*

This tab is a simpler version written with-out the frequent muting
(which can only really be heard during the soft part anyway... 
however, i wrote it in during the soft part (2:19))

Times are approximate

Figure 1a - Verse part 1, played clean (0:05)

*(the slide down, on E from 7th fret to open, is played only
during the introduction on the upbeat of the bar prior to the main 
riff. other times omit slide)
