** Depress whammy bar as far as it will go (about an octave) then 
strike note and shake bar up and down 7 times (eighth notes -&2&3 etc.) 
This goes real fast so have fun!!

Here just punch out a  D  chord: (palm mute open d's) 
 
---------2-------3---|----2---| 
---3-----3-------3---|----3---|

-----0-0---0--0----0-|-0--0---| 
 
Now do the bar dive trick, except shake the bar 9 times, (i.e. 1&2&3&4&1) 
 
Continue with this on the "&" of first beat: 
 
--------------------------|

--2--4^2--4--5/6----------| 
--2--4^2--4--5/6----------| 
--------------------------| 
--------------------------| 
 
 
Here's the riff played before the first verse: 
 
Palm mute all F#'s on six string: (the technique I recommend for this is 
rocking your 
first finger back and forth and using the third finger to barre the two notes 
at the fourth 
fret:

                                                               * last note 
not P.M. 
 
Ok, do that again for the verse up to "A" and then again up to "A" with the 
following 
variation on the last two bars: 
 
"...problem." 
-----------------------|-----------------------|

---2--2--2--2--2--2--2-|-2---------------------| 
 
He continues using the riff throughout the verse with some variations that 
you should be able to fiqure out were they go if you here the song: 
 
"Kickin' back.."

Punch an  E5  chord (7th pos) here: 
 
       "I just.." 
 
Then: 
 
"slide..." 
 
1&.....................&|...................4.&|1.&...........4..&|1.&........

--0--0-------2--0--4--|-(4)--4(7)--4(8)--4(8)--4(9)--4(11)~~~|--(4(11))~~~~~~~ 
| 
 
OK, now: 
 
Now do the bar dive trick, except shake the bar 9 times, (i.e. 1&2&3&4&1) 
 
Continue with this on the "&" of first beat: 
 
--------------------------| 
--------------------------| 
--2--4^2--4--5/6----------| 
--2--4^2--4--5/6----------|

*2-| 
 
 
Now, for verse two and the chorus, you already know, just repeat the stuff. 
 
 
E-(2)~~~~~-------| 
 
Now for my favorite, the solo, pretty hard to fiqure out, I read this one 
riff in a guitar 
mag, you know the over the top tapping: 
 
The tapped riff is really 7th chords arppegiated. (16th notes) I show the 
technique for one chord 
and where the next chords are: 
 
 A7(12th)  
 
 
 
 
 
 
                       A7(12th)--|--B7(14)---|--B7(14)--|--C7(15)--|-D7(17)--|  
 
------------------------------------|  
-14------14--------14------14-------| 
-----12-------12-------12------12---| 
---14------14--------14------14-----| 
-------12--------12------12-------12| 
------------------------------------| 
* 1 2 1 2 1 2  1 2  1 2 1 2 1 2 1  2 
 
 Play the 14's with right hand and 12's with left over the top of the neck 
with the 
left hand pinky lying across and muting all the strings to cut out noise. 
 
* fingering 
 
Then he changes it with the same ideas: 
 
 E7  (play three times) 
 
--------------------17-------------| 
-21--17--21--17--21----19--21--17--| 
-------19------19----------------19| 
---21------21------21--------21----| 
-----------------------------------| 
-----------------------------------| 
 
The solo I'll post later after I figure it out!!!
