Here is the full song in tab form. This one is a lot easier to play
than Extreme Days or Get This Party Started.  The verses don't have any
real guitar parts so I used the bass or synthesizers and transcribed them.
I play it in Drop D tuning.  You can play it reagular tuning but the bridge
and ending won't work well. I created a group of Mp3's to use with this
tab.  The tab numbers correspond to the mp3 in the folder which I can send
anyone who wants it. (it's about 1MB)

for all of you who don't know, drop d is just tuning your sixth string down one step, so that your 6th string, 12th harmonic = the open 4th string.
