The whole beginning is variations on this theme...

  E-----------------------------0----------------------------------|
  B----------------------------0-----------------------------------|
  G-------4-----------4-------4------------------------------------|
  D-2------------------------2-------------------------------------|
  A-------------4-----------3--------------------------------------|
  E----------------------------------------------------------------|

This gets added as the riff builds, use pinch harmonics too...

  E---------------------------------7---------------------7-----------|
  B-----------------------------5--------5------------5--------5------|
  G-------4-----------4-----5----------------5----5-----------------5-|
  D-2-----------------------------------------------------------------|
  A-------------4-----------------------------------------------------|
  E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then this for the lyrics...

  E-3-------0------1-------3---------------------------------------|

  It was such a misfourtune to steal
  But the time finally came so I took
  If the moment were stretched to the seams
  Would it matter if nobody looked?

  Half of the time on the stage
  When most of it's not even real
  Regardless of anything fake
  How much can you practice to steal?

  The moment gets lost in the words
  For one time just let it be heard
  Resembling is never enough
  And to carry on blind is absurd

  Between either side of the choice
  Which possibly holds even more
  However the effort is voiced
  This has all probably happened before

There's a fast riff in there, not sure but something like this...

  E----------------------------------------------------------------|
  B-------3-5-3-------3-5-3-------3-5-3-------3-5-3----------------|
  G-0-2-0-------0-2-0-------0-2-0-------0-2-0-------0--------------|
  D----------------------------------------------------------------|
  A----------------------------------------------------------------|
  E----------------------------------------------------------------|

Note: the rest of this is from the 1/30/04 version, which is quite
different from the way they play it every time since.  Now they end it with
a jam very similar to the beginning of the song, with these lyrics...

  I missed the boat on what you said
  So say it all again
  Unless it's the same thing

Here's the other part from 1/30/04, I don't know why they dropped it?  Must have
felt it didn't really fit with the rest of the song, hopefully it pops up again somewhere...

The jam builds very slowly, based on

  G F Eb F

You can play major scales on each chord, as in Ionian mode.


These are some of the main riffs that the jam builds on...

            G                         F
  E----------------------------------------------------------------|
  B----------------------------------------------------------------|
  G----------------------------------------------------------------|

  A-3-5-3-5-------3-5-3-5-------3-5-3-5-------3-5-3-5--------------|
  E----------------------------------------------------------------|

            Eb                          F
  E----------------------------------------------------------------|
  B----------------------------------------------------------------|
  G----------------------------------------------------------------|
  D---------1-------------1-------------3-------------3------------|
  A-1-3-1-3-------1-3-1-3-------1-3-1-3-------1-3-1-3--------------|
  E----------------------------------------------------------------|

Here's an ascending riff that gets mixed in...

  E----------------------------------------------------------------|
  B---------4-------------4-------------4-------------4------------|
  G-1-3-1-3-------1-3-1-3-------1-3-1-3-------1-3-1-3--------------|
  D----------------------------------------------------------------|
  A----------------------------------------------------------------|
  E----------------------------------------------------------------|

  E----------------------------------------------------------------|
  B---------5-------------5-------------5-------------5------------|
  G-2-4-2-4-------2-4-2-4-------2-4-2-4-------2-4-2-4--------------|
  D----------------------------------------------------------------|
  A----------------------------------------------------------------|
  E----------------------------------------------------------------|

  E----------------------------------------------------------------|
  B---------7-------------7-------------7-------------7------------|
  G-4-6-4-6-------4-6-4-6-------4-6-4-6-------4-6-4-6--------------|

  G-5-7-5-7-------5-7-5-7-------5-7-5-7-------5-7-5-7--------------|
  D----------------------------------------------------------------|
  A----------------------------------------------------------------|
  E----------------------------------------------------------------|

Another one, triplet feel...

    G                                   F
  E-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
  B-------12----------------12----------------10----------------10----------|
  G-12-14----12-------12-14----12-------10-12----10-------10-12----10-------|
  D-------------14-12-------------14-12-------------12-10-------------12-10-|
  A-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
  E-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
     Eb                                 F
  E-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
  B--------8-----------------8----------------10----------------10----------|
  G--8-10-----8--------8-10-----8-------10-12----10-------10-12----10-------|
  D-------------10--8-------------10--8-------------12-10-------------12-10-|
  A-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
  E-------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Here's another, basically the whole jam you are repeating and building on
shapes, just sliding up or down 2 frets depending on which chord you're on...
To play it right,  you really just wanna try to free form around these shapes,
don't sit on one to long, weave them together and expand on them...

Play this, then again down 2 frets, then again down 2 more, then up 2...

  E-17p15----19p15----17p15----19p15----17p15----19p15----17p15----19p15-|
  B-------15-------15-------15-------15-------15-------15-------15-------|
  G----------------------------------------------------------------------|
  D----------------------------------------------------------------------|
  A----------------------------------------------------------------------|
  E----------------------------------------------------------------------|

Or this way...

  E-17p15----19p15----20p15----19p15----17p15----19p15----20p15----19p15-|
  B-------15-------15-------15-------15-------15-------15-------15-------|
  G----------------------------------------------------------------------|
  D----------------------------------------------------------------------|
  A----------------------------------------------------------------------|
  E----------------------------------------------------------------------|

Here's a slower melody that is in there...
    G             F             Eb            F
  E-----------------------------15------------13-----15--17-|
  B-12------------10-------------------16-------------------|
  G--------12------------10---------------------------------|
  D---------------------------------------------------------|
  A---------------------------------------------------------|
  E---------------------------------------------------------|

    G             F             Eb                   F
  E-19------------17------------11---13-11-13/15-----13---15-13-15/17-|
  B-------------------------------------------------------------------|
  G--------12------------10-------------------------------------------|
  D-------------------------------------------------------------------|
  A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
  E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
