                    This is all my own work.  You think I'm stupid?
                    -------------------
                    Here we go...
                    The very beginning of the song has a part that
                    nobody really knows about unless you own the CD.
                    It's an electric guitar playing the main theme.
                    It's so soft and overlooked, that radio DJs usually
                    speed through this part, but it provides a basis on
                    what's to come.
                    Electric w/ distortion
                    fingerpicked.
                           A2            Asus   A    Dsus D     Dsus  D
                    e---------------------------------3---2------3---2-----
                    b--------0-0-----------3-3-2-2----3---3------3---3-----
                    G------2-----2-------2------------2---2------2---2-----
                    D----2---------2---2--------------0---0------0---0-----
                    A--0-------------0----------------0---0------0---0-----
                    E---------------------------------0---0------0---0-----
                    It only exists for the beginning so if you're lazy you
                    don't have to learn it.
                    Immediately after, they whip out the acoustic.
                    He uses these chords:
                    A2  A  A2  Asus  A  Dsus  D  Dsus D
                    Easy.  In case you're new to guitar, here they are in
                    the dreaded TABLATURE form.
                      A2      A     Asus      Dsus      D
                    e-0       0      0          3       2
                    b-0       2      3          3       3
                    G-2       2      2          2       2
                    D-2       2      2          0       0
                    A-0       0      0          0       0
                    E-0       0      0          X       X
                    That's all of the verses.  The elcectric  comes
                    in after the lead singer sings that impossible note
                    near the end of the first verse.  It uses the same
                    chords as the acoustic, and DOES NOT do what it did
                    at the very beginning.
                    During the chorus, the guitars play opposite the
                    bass, and lay down these chords:
                    e-----X-------X--------X---------X
                    b-----X-------X--------X---------X
                    G-----X-------X--------X---------X
                    D----12------14-------11---------9
                    A----12------14-------11---------9
                    E----10------12--------9---------7
                    Do not play them as the full bar chord.
                    It won't sound right if you do.
                    I have been asked to do the guitar solo that happens
                    when he's screaming "Hey dude, what do ya think about
                    your song now?" but I have recieved word for a reliable
                    source that that is not a guitar at all, but a
                    syntheized keyboard.  Therefore, it is not included here.
