Wow! That's it with the intro. After a moment of silence and a stupid
conversation, they play this...

That's the point when James plays the small clean solo (as described beneath).
In the background Kirk plays the ‚verse'.


James' Solo (clean)

e---12-----14-----15-----17-----8-----8---------------8-------
B------12-----12-----12-----12----5-----5-------5---5---5-----
G-----------------------------------5-----5---5---5-------5---

E-------------------------------------------------------------


e---0------0----0------0----7-7~--7-7~--- (you can also play
B-----1------1----3------0---------------  --12-12~--12-12~-- here)
G-------0-----------2--------------------
D----------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------- Play the solo 2 times.


Then they play the ‚verse' and the ‚chord thing' which they've played
after the 3rd verse.

After the verse Kirk plays in the background something like that:
(Instead of the distortion, play the chords heavy!!)

       Em Em Em Em Em Em Em D  D  D  C
e--|---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--2--2--2--0---|--

       v  v  ^  v  ^  v  ^  v  ^  v                                       

And James plays his distorted solo.
You wonder where James' solo is ? Well, I don't know.
I couldn't figure it out (sorry). But on accoustic guitar it sounds shit
anyway. If someone has a good interpretation of the solo,
please mail it to me!! Or you take the solo from the original version, which


At the end of the song, Kirk plays (clean again):
