                This is a pretty basic tab as I'v never actually tabbed anything out before.
These are just the main chords, you're best off listening to the song for the rhythm.
The whole song is played with a distorted channel unless otherwise stated.

After the piano the guitar kicks in with this bit.
e -----------------------------------------
b -----------------------------------------
g -----------------------------------------
d ---2------7------------------------------
a ---2------7------------------------------
e ---0------5------------------------------

Play through twice and palm mute all the way through until the end of the second cycle
and begin to play the last chord open til the chorus. Also I'm not too sure on the little
squeel harmonic that Linde does, but shouldn't be too hard to figure out
e ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
b ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
g ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
d ---2-------7-------5-------2-------5-------7-------5-------7---------------
a ---2-------5-------5-------2-------5-------7-------5-------7---------------
e ---0-------5-------3-------0-------3-------5-------3-------5---------------

Here come Lindes traditional pick rake.
Play the chords twice open, but as you finish the first cycle rake the pik along
the low E and then start from the second chord.
After playing it through twice play the intro chord til it goes back to the chorus.
e ---------------------------------------------------
b ----------------------------------9----------------
g -------------5--------------------9----------------
d ----5--------5---------5----------7----------------
a ----5--------3---------5---------------------------
e ----3------------------3---------------------------

This bit is really easy, just play it with a clean channel.
This bit is also played right at the end as Ville says "man".
e ----0--------------------
b ----0--------------------
g ----0--------------------
d ----2--------------------
a ----2--------------------
e ----0--------------------

e -------------------------------------------------
b -------------------------------------------------
g -------------------------------------------------
d -------------------------------------------------
a -------------------------------------------------
e -----0---0---3---7---5---5------5---5---3---2----

Ok, so this isn't perfect, well I'm a bit unsure, but I think it goes a little something
like this. There's a lot of bending which is hard to get across like this but I'll give
it a go. Also there is a little bit of wah going on here too.
As with the rest of the song, listen hard n try n fit it in there.
b-----(bend n hold)>14-----14----------------------------(bend n hold)>6------------------------
g----------------------(bend n hold)>14----14---12-------(bend n hold)>6------------------------
d----------------------------------------------------14--(bend n hold)>6------------------------

Ok, so there you have it!
Solitary Man as played by HIM, enjoy yourselves.
When I get around to doing any more I'll submit those too.
