 Before you start ,put the guitar down,
 and just listen to song and read along. 
 Tabs always make way more sense that way.
 Especially on a song like this. Keep in 
 mind that some of the sections in my tab
 aren't 100% accurate as far as strum pattern
 and such due to Brian Setzer(guitar god) 
 playing in a loose jazzy fashion. But at 
 any rate you should end up with your 
 fingers in the right place and get a 
 feel for the chords.Ok let's go:





 b=bend up
 r=release bend
 ~=vibrato
 /=slide up
 \=slide down
 *=trill
 tr=temelo pick
 p.m.------|=palm mute
 x=muffled string or note
 h=hammer on
 p=pull off


 Song starts with just bass and drums.

 Guitar= mostly clean w/reverb
