This is what I've come up with for Big Head Todd and the Monsters
song "Bittersweet" from their latest album.  I make no guarrante as
to the accuracy, but it sounds pretty close when I play along with
the song.  Please E-Mail/Post me any corrections....
The basic riff:
  G        D              Am  C
A slight variation on the above ending:
I know this is not correct, but it is the basic notes.  In reality
he shifts his hand positions up the neck as he plays it, and ends
up with a F-major bar chord on the 5th fret.
 C            G         Dm
I don't have the solo completely worked out, but the basic chords
on the intro are the F-major (5 5 7 5 6 5 ) and G-major 
(7 7 9 7 8 7) bar chords on the 5th and 7th frets respectively.   
After the bridge, the solo starts out like this:
---7------7------7---------------------------   etc.....
Really snap the F on the B-string.  This leads into a rhythm
pattern with the G and F bar chords and a little riff that goes
kind of like this:
------------5-5-5---7-------5---7----------------------  repeat
----5---7----------------------------------------------  as
-------------------------------------------------------  necessary
I'm not really sure on the rest of the solo.... If anyone else can
decipher it and post it, I'd appreciate it......  I know it's just
some basic chords but I can't get it to sound just right.
I've been using a combination of the following chords:
x x x 7 8 10
x x x 7 8 7 
x x x 7 8 8
x x x x 8 7
x x x x 7 5
x x x x 5 3 
x x x x 10 8
x x x x 12 10
x x x x 15 15
I know there is more to it though....
That's what I've come up with.... Any comments, questions, or
corrections are welcome....
