  My little brother figured this out 

"December" - Collective Soul


I am 13 and have been playing the guitar for a couple of
years now.

I figured this out within 2 or 3 minutes of watching the
music video on MTV.

"December" - Collective Soul


I'm not totally confident about some parts so any corrections are welcome.

riff 1 (clean electric):

e-|--------------3-----------|--------------3-----------|
B-|-----------------3--------|-----------------3--------|
G-|-----0-----0--------0-----|-----0-----0--------0-----|
D-|--0-----0-----------------|--0-----0-----------------|
A-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E-|--------------------------|--------------------------|


e-|--------------3-----------|--------------------------|
B-|-----------------3--------|--------------------------|
G-|-----0-----0--------0-----|-----0-----------0--0-----|
D-|--0-----0-----------------|--0-----0-----------------|
A-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E-|--------------------------|--------------------------|


riff 2 (slightly distorted):

e-|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|
B-|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|
G-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
D-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
     x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x     x  x  x  

     < (volume builds)          <

I can't remember on exactly which note the muting stops...


riff 3 (this may not even be a guitar on the record :) ):

e-|--3-----3-----3--5--3-----|--1-----1-----1--3--1-----|
B-|--3-----3-----3--3--3-----|--1-----1-----1--1--1-----|
G-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
D-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E-|--------------------------|--------------------------|

e-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
B-|--5-----5-----5--5--5-----|--3-----3-----3--3--3-----|
G-|--5-----5-----5--7--5-----|--3-----3-----3--5--3-----|
D-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E-|--------------------------|--------------------------|

chord prog (acoustic):

|: G | F | C | A# :|

Bass:

G-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
D-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E-|--3-----------------------|--1-----------------------|

G-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
D-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A-|--3-----------------------|--1-----------1-----2-----|
E-|--------------------------|--------------------------|

The bass starts mixing it up as the song goes on, but it's
pretty much just variations on the above.


riff 1 6X
chord prog 2X
chord prog 2X w/riff 3
riff 1 6X
chord prog 2X
chord prog 2X w/riff 3
riff 3 2X
riff 1 3X
chord prog 2X
chord prog 4X w/riff 3 and lots of adlibing...
riff 1

There is also another guitar doing some dabbling.  I've tried to 
make the timing accurate, but this is from memory.
