Drop D Tuning (DADGBE) (both guitars)


All the other tabs of this song are very inaccurate. This is the
only correct version I have ever seen. I just saw them play on Saturday and so
I tabbed out what I saw. Thanks!

Legend:
(x): Harmonic on x fret
 / : Slide

Gtr. 1 - Clean electric, no effects (might sound good with Chorus effect though)
This is the main riff that is repeated throughout almost the whole song, except
for the distorted chorus. Every time the clean guitar plays, this is the exact 
riff, with no variation.
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G|--11---11h12-11-------11h12-11-/-7--6h7-6----7-/-9-/-11----------------------
D|--9----9-----9--12-12-12----12-/-5--5---5-7--5-/-7-/-9-----------------------
A|--9----9-----9--10-10-10----10-/-5--5---5-5--5-/-7-/-9-----------------------
D|--9----9-----9-----------------/-5--5---5-5--5-/-7-/-9-----------------------

Gtr. 2 - Clean electric w/ chorus and delay, possibly mild distortion
This is the harmonic part that is played alongside the above riff for most of 
the "clean" parts of the song. Comes in at :25 along with the drums.
Riff 1:
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
D|----------(5)-------------------(5)--------(4)-------------------------------
A|------(5)-----(5)-(4)(5)----(5)-----(5)-(4)----------------------------------
D|--(5)-------------------(5)--------------------------------------------------

Riff 2:                             Riff 3:
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
D|----------(5)---------------------(5)----------------------------------------
A|------------------(5)-----------------(4)------------------------------------
D|--(5)------------------------------------------------------------------------

Listen to the song to figure out which parts to play at which time.

Gtr. 2 also plays some non-harmonic lead parts that are not hard at all. If you
want to play them, it's mostly 4th, 5th, and 7th fret on the A and higher D
string, with some effects and scale elements. Mess around and have fun.

At 3:22, the distortion kicks in. As far as I can tell, there's only one guitar
playing.

Gtr. 1 - Distorted electric, no effects
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|----------------------7------------------------7-----------------------------
G|----6-----7-----7-9-7---7----6-----7-----7-9-7---7---------------------------
D|----7-----7-----5-5-5-5-5----7-----7-----5-5-5-5-5---------------------------
A|----4-----5-----5-5-5-5-5----4-----5-----5-5-5-5-5---------------------------
D|----------------5-5-5-5-5----------------5-5-5-5-5---------------------------
Note: I am not sure that the 7-9-7 etc. part on the G power chord is on the 
studio version. That's how they play it live, but it may just be something 
that was added as part of the live show. I can't make it out on the CD, so I 
guess it's optional:
Variation 1 -
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
G|----6-----7-----7-7-7-7-7----------------------------------------------------
D|----7-----7-----5-5-5-5-5----------------------------------------------------
A|----4-----5-----5-5-5-5-5----------------------------------------------------
D|----------------5-5-5-5-5----------------------------------------------------

Also, I believe this next part is on the CD, but is also optional because it's 
not very easy to play. It's a lot easier for the bass guitar to pick up, but it
sounds cool if you can get it right on the electric:
Variation 2 -
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|----------------------7------------------------7-----------------------------
G|----6-----7-----7-9-7---7----6-666-7-----7-9-7---7---------------------------
D|----7-----7-----5-5-5-5-5----7-777-7-----5-5-5-5-5---------------------------
A|----4-----5-----5-5-5-5-5----4-457-5-----5-5-5-5-5---------------------------
D|----------------5-5-5-5-5----------------5-5-5-5-5---------------------------
Tip: Slide the index finger up one fret to hit the 5, and then use the pinky to
hit the 7, and then quickly move the pinky back to the G string in time for the
D power chord.

After the distorted part is over, repeat the clean riffs above, with both
guitars. Repeat until the end of the song.

I have seen a lot of people try to tab this song, but none of them were right.
I watched them play this song live a few days ago, and I was standing so close
to Neil that I could have strummed his guitar, so this is right. :)

I may have made typos, because I typed it out pretty fast, so feel free to post
corrections as you see fit.
