Tuning: B F# B E G# C# (Tune to drop D and then tune everything three half-steps
	lower. This is to get the low, bassy tone which Jamie's got.)


Basically the song is alternating between these two chords/notes:

       A#	C
C# |--------|--------|
G# |--------|--------|
E  |--------|--------|
B  |---11---|---13---|
F# |---11---|---13---|
B  |---11---|---13---|

Alternatively:

       A#	C
C# |--------|--------|
G# |--------|--------|
E  |--------|--------|
B  |--------|--------|
F# |--------|--------|
B  |---11---|---13---|


Sometimes Jamie's playing some fancy parts on the high strings.
Kind of this but very alternating:

       A#		   C
C# |-------------9-9---|---------------------|
G# |-------------------|-------11----11------|
E  |---10--10-10-------|---12-----12----12---|
B  |---11--------------|---13----------------|
F# |---11--------------|---13----------------|
B  |---11--------------|---13----------------|

At 01:35 there is some sort of bridge (played twice):

       G#      G      F#       F
C# |-------|-------|-------|-------|
G# |-------|-------|-------|-------|
E  |-------|-------|-------|-------|
B  |--(9)--|--(8)--|--(7)--|--(6)--|
F# |--(9)--|--(8)--|--(7)--|--(6)--|
B  |---9---|---8---|---7---|---6---|


I'm sure you can stitch it together!

Good luck!
