                Hi guys, first tab so be gentle. Not sure how accurate this is but I think its pretty 
good. Put it together from a mix of watching live footage (for the riff and chorus) and by 
ear (for the solo).

John plays this on his 11 string (he removes the higher octave G) but I find this works 
fine for 6 string.

Tuning is Open C (CGCGCE) with a capo on 4th.

Intro and Verses

C|-0-----x-0-----x--0-----x-0-----0----0-----x-0-----x--0-----x-0-----0-|

The x's here don't symbolise a strike of all the strings whilst muted as such, more like 
John's typical percussive guitar playing (how he keeps the rhythm while he plays).

Chorus

E|------------------------------x--------x-------------------------------|
C|------9--------9-----------0--x-----0--x------0------0--0--------------|
G|------8--------8--------8h9-0-x--8h9-0-x---8h9-0--8h9-0-0--------------|
C|------------------------------x--------x----------------0--------------|
G|--x-x----x-x-x----------------x--------x-------------------------------|
C|--9-9----7/9-9-9--------0-----x--0-----x---0------0--------------------|

Play this twice, but not fully. Listen to the track, they kill it in the first chorus 
and again in the second for a bass fill.

After the bass fill

C|-0-0-0---0-0-0-----0-0-0---0-0-0-0-0/4--|

Play this twice.

Solo - I think this is pretty much there but probably not 100%.

Sorry for not really putting it in any coherent way regarding timing, just the way I 
wrote it down when I was trying to work it out.

Bridge

E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C|-9-9-9---9-9-9--9\7-7-7-7---7-7-7--7\5-5-5-5---5-5-5--5--5-5-5---5--9-9-7-7-|

Play this twice.

This last chorus I am really not sure about but this is what I think, its just picking 
over the top of the bridge really.

E|-----------------------------------------------------------|
C|----7-----7-0--------------------0-----0-------0-----0-----|
G|-8h9-9-8h9-9---6h7-7-6h7-6p4--4h5-5-4h5-5-4-4h5-5-4h5-5-4--|
C|-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------|
C|-0-----0---0---7---7-7-----5--5-----5-----5-5-----5-----5--|

Then its back to the verse riff.

Thats all I've got, please rate and comment.

Cheers
