To play this song, first detune your low E string to a low D,
then capo on the first fret (or don't capo and play it a half
step lower than on the album, or add 1 to each fret number and
play it without the capo in the same key = Eb)

intro/theme riff

---10----12----10----14p10------  play this cutesy little riff
------10----10----10-------10---  4x solo, then 8x with band
--------------------------------  behind playing these dist.
--------------------------------  power chords:
--------------------------------
--------------------------------

play these chords 4 times, using this 3rd chord the 3rd time
---------------------------------------   --------------
---------------------------------------   --------------
---------------------------------------   --------------
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7\-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5---   --0/-7/-9\-5--
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7\-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5---   --0/-7/-9\-5--
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7\-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5---   --0/-7/-9\-5--

(you get the idea-
The lead part is as follows:
repeat six times then do:                vib.
---------------------   --------------------7-------
------7-----7h8p7----   ------7-------7ph8-----7----
--7-7---7-7-------7--   --7-7---7-7-7------------7--
---------------------   ----------------------------
---------------------   ----------------------------
---------------------   ----------------------------


Then play this on cleanish guitar, 3x, sliding up to the 9th fret
chord on the fourth time:
                                                    4th time
------2-2-2------5-5-5--------3-----------3-------  -2-5-7-
------3-3-3------5-5-5--------3-----------3-------  -3-5-7-
------2-2-2------6-6-6--------4-----4-----4-------  -2-6-8-
--0-0---0-0/-7-7---7-7\-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5\--  -0-7-9-
--0-0---0-0/-7-7---7-7\-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5\--  -0-7-9-
--0-0---0-0/-7-7---7-7\-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5\--  -0-7-9-

kick the distortion back on and play this progression under "I
want to turn you on.. etc" a total of 3 times, then play the next
progression once going back into the cleanish chords:
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5/-9--9-9-9--9-9-9--9-9--9-9\--
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5/-9--9-9-9--9-9-9--9-9--9-9\--
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5/-9--9-9-9--9-9-9--9-9--9-9\--

----------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
--2-2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5-5\-4-4-4-4-4/-11--11-11-11-11-11-11--
--2-2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5-5\-4-4-4-4-4/-11--11-11-11-11-11-11--
--2-2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5-5\-4-4-4-4-4/-11--11-11-11-11-11-11--

The lead part over the above chords is really simple, play it on
the first and third times, over the C (9th fret) chord:
 slow bend w/vib
----------------
------5b7-------
----------------
----------------
----------------
----------------

Now play the whole cleanish-chord section as above, with this
lead part above it (clean guitar-:

-----------------------------------------|--------------------
-----------------------------------------|--------------------
---------------------11-12---11h12p11----|--------------------
---12----14----12---------------------12-|-12----14----12-----
------12----12----12---------------------|----12----12----12--
-----------------------------------------|--------------------

-----------------------------------------|--------------------
--------------------10-------------------|--------------------
---11-12-------0----------11h12p11-------|--------------------
---------12------------12----------12p11-|-12----14----12-----
------------12---12----------------------|----12----12----12--
-----------------------------------------|--------------------

----------------------------------|-----------------------------
--------------------10------------|-----------------------------
--11-12-------11---------12p11----|-----------------------------
--------12------------------------|-12----14----12----16p12-----
-----------12----12------------12-|----12----12----12-------12--
----------------------------------|-----------------------------
                   dist.  vib
--------------------------------
-----------------------12-------
-------------------/11----11-\--
--------------------------------
---12/14-14-14-14---------------
--------------------------------


Then go into this progression and play it 3x and add on the
different chords afterwards:

--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5\-0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7\-
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5\-0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7\-
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5\-0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7\-

----------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5\-4-4-4-4/-11--11-11-11-11-11-11--
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5\-4-4-4-4/-11--11-11-11-11-11-11--
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5\-4-4-4-4/-11--11-11-11-11-11-11--


Now, for the part under "today is, today is...", play this
progression twice, then the two that follow it:

play this twice
---------------------------------------
---------------------------------------
---------------------------------------
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7\-0-0-0-0/-5-5-5-5\--
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7\-0-0-0-0/-5-5-5-5\--
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7\-0-0-0-0/-5-5-5-5\--

---------------------------------------
---------------------------------------
---------------------------------------
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7/-9-9-9-9\-5-5-5-5\--
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7/-9-9-9-9\-5-5-5-5\--
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7/-9-9-9-9\-5-5-5-5\--

---------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7/-9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9\--
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7/-9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9\--
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7/-9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9\--

The lead part for this is very similar to the full-band lead
before the first verse.

Play this progression under "I want to turn you on..." just as
before, repeat the first line 3x and then play the last one into
the outro.
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5/-9--9-9-9--9-9-9--9-9--9-9\--
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5/-9--9-9-9--9-9-9--9-9--9-9\--
--2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5/-9--9-9-9--9-9-9--9-9--9-9\--

----------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
--2-2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5-5\-4-4-4-4-4/-11--11-11-11-11-11-11--
--2-2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5-5\-4-4-4-4-4/-11--11-11-11-11-11-11--
--2-2-2-2-2/-5-5-5-5-5\-4-4-4-4-4/-11--11-11-11-11-11-11--

Now repeat this last little phrase 4x through to the end.

---------------------------------------
---------------------------------------
---------------------------------------
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7/-9-9-9-9\-5-5-5-5\--
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7/-9-9-9-9\-5-5-5-5\--
--0-0-0-0/-7-7-7-7/-9-9-9-9\-5-5-5-5\--

The lead parts in the outro are the clean cutesy riff, the
hammer-on 7th fret riff, and this:
                                                vib sustain
------------------------------------------14p10-------------
-------------------------------------10---------10----------
--11---------11h12p11----11----11h12------------------------
-----14-12------------12----12------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------

Then end with this chord:
   trem bend down

Lyrics to Today:

Today is the greatest day I've ever known
Can't live for tomorrow, tomorrow's much too long
I'll burn my eyes out, before I get out

I wanted more
Than I could ever grant
Bored by the chore
Of saving face

Today is the greatest day I've ever known
Can't wait for tomorrow, I might not have that long
I'll tear my heart out, before I get out

Pink ribbon scars that never forget
I've tried so hard to cleanse these regrets
My angel wings were bruised and restrained
My belly stings

Today is, today is,
Today is the greatest
Day...

I want to turn you on, I want to turn you on,
I want to turn you on, I want to turn you

Today is the greatest
Today is the greatest.... day
Today is the greatest.... day
I have ever really known
