This is just a simple rhythm based on all the basic chords.  Feel free to
add solos and riffs.  Since there are three guitars being played it is
incredibly difficult to differentiate what you here.

Intro: The intro is a hideous beast. I can't really give you anything firm,
except that it's based around D, E, and G.

The main "verse" progression begins to come in, which is:
E --------------------------|
B --------------------------|
G --------------------------|
D -2----x----2-5-5-5-5-2----|
A -2----x----2-5-5-5-5-2----|
E -0----x----0-3-3-3-3-0----|
and that just repeats a bunch, E and G.

Occassionally this will pop up in the verse:
E ----------------------------------------------------|
B ----------------------------------------------------|
G ----------------------------------------------------|
D -7---7-5--5-5-5--5-7---7---7-5-5-5---5--8--8--7--7--|
A -7---7-5--5-5-5--5-7---7---7-5-5-5---5--8--8--7--7--|
E -5---5-3--3-3-3--3-5---5---5-3-3-3---3--6--6--5--5--|

And then, the last time around right before the chorus:
E --------------------------------------------------------------|
B --------------------------------------------------------------|
G --------------------------------------------------------------|
D -7---7-5--5-5-5--5-7---7---7-5-5-5---5--8--8--7--7--5--5---4--|
A -7---7-5--5-5-5--5-7---7---7-5-5-5---5--8--8--7--7--5--5---4--|
E -5---5-3--3-3-3--3-5---5---5-3-3-3---3--6--6--5--5--3--3---2--|

And then, the chorus:
E ----------------------------------------------------|
B ----------------------------------------------------|
G ----------------------------------------------------|
D -2----------5----------8--------2------5----/8\-----|
A -2----------5----------8--------2------5----/8\-----|
E -0----------3----------6--------0------3----/6\-----|

After that part of the chorus, it goes into that "What I really want is all
those things that I can't have..." part, which is rather odd. It has a lot
of "noise" guitars; the only real chord progression that I can determine is
this, which is based on C and A#. You can hear it est on the Farewell version,
at about 6:56

E --------------------------|
B --------------------------|
G -5-x-5-x-5-x-3---3-3-3-3--|
D -5-x-5-x-5-x-3---3-3-3-3--|
A -3-x-3-x-3-x-1---1-1-1-1--|
E --------------------------|

oh, and BTW, those x's signify a muted strum, incase you couldn't figure that

And all that's left, aside from an enormous amount of really complicated solos
and basslines, is the "please, mama..." part, which I have no idea what that
is. :) Like I said, this song is just incredibly complex. If anyone else knows
more parts, has corrections, etc, I would really love to hear them and I'll
try to update this thing.
