Tuning: Standard
Play Style: Fingers (in my opinion)

Intro:
First variation follows the guitar - second is the way the bass is recorded.

Mutes just sound good, don't believe their actually in the song. Can just rest instead.

A Couple Random Comments:
Keep in mind these are less of what I heard on the recorded album and more things I
up on that sound good when covering this song

On The Intro:
- For the final piece of the intro sounds good to change up the final two notes to |-4-2--|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---2-0--0---------2-0---0---------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------2--2-0---------2---2-------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-0------------3-0------------4-2--------------------------------------------------------|

-For the ending can also hold a 2 on the E string for the last bit, sounds like the
version as well:
G|----------------------------------------|
D|---2-0--0-------2~----------------------|
A|-------2--2-0---------------------------|
E|-0------------3-------------------------|

OR

G|----------------------------------------|
D|-2-----0h2------2~----------------------|
A|---0-2----------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------|


On the Chorus
- Can play the ending of the chorus in an easier way that sounds cleaner too:
G|------------------------------------|
D|----2h4--------2h4-2---2h4----------|
A|------------------------------4-3-2-|
E|-0-2---0-2-0-2------0-2---0-2-------|

- Can play the 4s on the D string 2h4 very quickly during the chorus to make it sound 
interesting:
G|------------------------------------|
D|----2h4--------2h4-2---2h4----6-5-4-|
A|------------------------------4-3-2-|
E|-0-2---0-2-0-2------0-2---0-2-------|

- Can add an extra open note near the end that doesn't sound half bad for the chorus.
don't let it ring:
G|-------------------------------------|
D|-----4---------4-2-----4-------6-5-4-|
A|-------------------------------4-3-2-|
E|-0-2---0-2-0-2-----0-2---0-2-0-------|

- Can add a slide at the end to change things up every once in a while:
G|---------------------------------------|OR |---------|
D|-----4---------4-2-----4-------6-5-----|   |---------|
A|-------------------------------4-3/-14-|   |-4-3/-14-|
E|-0-2---0-2-0-2-----0-2---0-2-0---------|   |---------|

One of my favorite songs to play, have fun mess around with it and make it sound the best.
