Tuning: Standard (EADG)

This is my first tab, but I'm pretty sure that most of it's right. I'm fairly certain he
it with a pick, and with a bit of overdrive. There are a few bits in the verses where
throws in a mute instead of a note, or an extra note, but it sounds just fine without 
and they don't really seem to follow a pattern. I'm not 100% sure about the slide at
end of the chorus, or at the end of the song, but it sounds good, so meh. If you have 
suggestions, etc. I'd love to hear from you. Hope you enjoy playing this song as much as I do!

They pretty much just mess around at the end and it sounds a bit like he puts the bass
a bar or two before the end of the song, so pretty much just go nuts.
