Not enough tabs for this great band. This is my first attempt at tab, you guys sure have
lot of patience! Please excuse any errors, comments welcome.  This is a cross between
studio and live versions really.

Intro is a sustained E5 power chord on 7th fret, with open bottom e string and feedback. 
Then....

E          A           A  B   D    B          F#           F# E
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------x-x-x---|

You're on your own with the guitar solo's, maybe one day I'll get 'round to it.  I will
to tab more songs if I can.
