Alright, this is the life version of Zero. 
I thought I had to place the right chords
and voicings. 
Billy prefers playing a Gibson SG for this
song, James played a Gibson Les Paul in the
live video.

Some guy gave the first version of this tab a 
low rating so I just have to say; This is the
life version! Live version!!! THE LIVE VERSION!!!!
*** off, if you asshole don´t like it. It´s how
they did it! Exactly!

Intro:

Billy
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|
|--5\4-4-----------5-5\4-4---------------| 2 times
|-(5\4-4)---------(5-5\4-4)--------------|
|--3\2-2-----------3-3\2-2---------------|
|--------*2/3/3/4*---------*2/3/3/4*-0---|

To get these harmonics I use the whammy bar for the 
slides `to the 3s. If you´re good try getting the
sound by sliding with your fingernail. Billy sets 
his finger off the string when he plays this. 

For the verse James joins Billy with this,
the vocals kick in after the first repeat:

James
|----------------------------------------|
|-13\12-12--------13-13\12-12------------|
|----------------------------------------| 6 times
|-10\9--9---------10-10\9--9-------------|
|----------------------------------\\\---|
|----------0-0-0-0-----------0-0-0-------|

       "My reflection"    "dirty mirror…"

Then there´s that bridge when Billy sings:
"Save your prayers":

Billy + James
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|--9-----11----9-----12-----11-11-11-11---| 
|-----------------------------------------|
|--7-----9-----7-----10-----9--9--9--9----|
|----0-0---0-0---0-0----0-0----10-10-10---|

Billy + James
|--------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------|
|--9-----11----9-----12-----11/14-14---| 
|--------------------------------------|
|--7-----9-----7-----10-----9//12-12---|
|----0-0---0-0---0-0----0-0------------|

Billy + James
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|--9-----11----9-----12-----11-11-11-11---| 
|-----------------------------------------|
|--7-----9-----7-----10-----9--9--9--9----|
|----0-0---0-0---0-0----0-0----10-10-10---|

Billy + James
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|--9-----11----9-----12-----11-11-11-\----| 
|-----------------------------------------|
|--7-----9-----7-----10-----9--9--9--\----|
|----0-0---0-0---0-0----0-0----10-10-\----|
                      
After the part when Billy screams "Hey,
wanna go for a ride", the Chorus kicks in,
which is similar to the verse.

Interlude:

This is the part with the stops and Billy 
Shouts "Emptiness is loneliness and lonliness 
is cleanliness and cleanliness is godliness 
and god is empty, just like you". 

Billy + James     3x
|-------------------|----------------------------|
|-------------------|----------------------------|
|--9-9-9------------|-9-9------------------------|
|--9-9-9------------|-9-9------------------------|
|--7-7-7------------|-7-7------------------------|
|--0-0-0------------|-0-0------------------------|


Lead Solo:

Billy
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|
|--5\4-4-----------5-5\4-4---------------| 2 times 
|----------------------------------------|
|--3\2-2-----------3-3\2-2---------------|
|--------*2/3/3/4*---------*2/3/3/4*-0---|

James
|-------------------------/12~~~~~-15b17\---|
|----------------/12~~~---------------------|
|--/12~~~-----------------------------------|
|---------/14~~~----------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|


The next Verse´s pretty much the same but 
with the Main Riff played only 4 times.
The bridge´s the same, too.

Guitar Solo:

Billy (wha – wha)
|---------------------------------------///22----------------------|
|---------------------------15gb~~~~~~---------17b~-17b~-----------|
|--------------------------------------------------------0h14~~~---|
|------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----slow-pick-scrape---------------------------------------------|

|----------------------------------------------x-----------------------|
|----------------------------------------------x-----------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

Billy (wha-wha)
|--17~~thrill~~19~~--12~----------11~\\\-------------------|
|------(slow)------------0h17~~~---------------------------|
|------------------------------------------14b16\----------|
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------x---------\\\-----|
|----------------------------------------x---------\\\-----|


During the solo James repeats the Main Riff 
with slight variations 4 times

Interlude:

Billy
|----------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------|
|--9-----9-----9-----9-----11-11-11-11---| 4 times
|--9-----9-----9-----9-----11-11-11-11---|
|--7-----7-----7-----7-----9--9--9--9----|
|----0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0----10-10-10---|

James
|-------------------------------12-12/14/15/17/19-19-22*b~\\\---|
|----------------12-12/13/15-15---------------------------------|
|--9/11/12/14-14------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------|

"You blame yourself for what you can´t ignore"


Chorus:

James lets ring his last not of the lead part 
and joins the band after the first time of the
main riff. The chorus simply the Main riff 
played three times with a variation the last 
time. Live, the band plays it 7 times and the
variation at the very end.

Billy
|---------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------|
|--5\4-4-----------5-5\4----------------|
|-----------------------------stop------|
|--3\2-2-----------3-3\2----------------|
|--------*2/3/3/4*----------------------|

James
|---------------------------------------|
|-13\12-12--------13-13\12--------------|
|---------------------------------------| 
|-10\9--9---------10-10\9-----stop------|
|---------------------------------------|
|----------0-0-0-0----------------------|

"She´s my one               and only"

Perhaps you may think that James´ chords in the Main riffs
just don´t sound right, but that´s the way how I saw him
playing Zero live.
