VERSION 2 - Tabbed by Steve Smith

 

this song is pretty easy, you need 2 guitars though

 

intro (heavy distortion, big guitar sound)

e|--------------------------------

b|--------------------------------

g|--------------------------------

d|---------------------------2----

a|-----------2---------------2----

e|--2--4---------4---2---4---0----

 

then

e|--------------------------------

b|--------------------------------

g|--------------------------------

d|----------------------2--4------

a|------------2--4----------------

e|--2--4--------------------------

 

guitar2 plays

e|---------------------

b|---9b(9)b(9)b(9)-----

g|---------------------

d|---------------------

a|---------------------

e|---------------------

 

then the verse is an E chord, with the intro parts at the end of the

lines. There is no solo, and the guitar chords on the:

 

F#________A________________E

"I know you think you look so special"

 

and that's about it. There are a few other tedious parts in the songs,

but you can pretty much make those up or whatever. This is the vital

part of the song.
