        F#            is way easier to play.

Interlude: (This Section is muted with the palm)

---------------------------------------------------|
--2--2--0--0----------2p0-----2--0-----------------|
----------------5p0--------0---------0h5p0---------|
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|


After 4 times played, the interlude is overdubbed once more.
Then, goes to something like this...

---------------------------------------------------|
--2--2--0--0--------2p0-----2----0-----------------|
---------------5p0-------0------------5------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------|


Small Lead Part during break:

------------------------------------------------------------------------|
--12--------------------------------------------------------------------|
------h16---14--------------14p11h12p11---------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------h14---12h14p12------12h14---|
------------------------------------------------------------h14---------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------|


----------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------|
------------------12----12---12---14---16-----------------|
-----14--14--14---12---(14---------------)---14-----------|
-----14--14--14------------------------------14-----------|
----------------------------------------------------------|

No idea if this last part of the lead is right but I think it's close.



Outro: (Keep in mind that the Chorus is playing at the same time, so you'll here the
other arpeggios as well.)

------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|
---16---14~~~16---12--------12---16---14~~~16---12-------12-------|
------------------------12-----------------------------12---------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|


Then...The fancy part in between

-------------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------|
--------12---------12---------12-----12--14--16--14--12------------|
--12h14-----12h14------12h14-----12----------------------12--------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------|


And...The Second little fancy part

-----------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------|
--16--14~~~~12--------------12--------12--14---------------|
-----------------12---12h14-----12h14----------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------|




Well, there you have it. I think this is pretty accurate. Tuning the B string up to C# 
really helps.

Also, if you want the same tone as the song, it's real easy. I use one of those compressor/limiter
pedals and compress the line a little. Send that signal straight into a mixer or
ANYTHING BUT a guitar amp
because it's a direct line he's using.
