{Whistling} 
............ 
 
The main guitar for the song is a heavily distorted electric - hence you've got 
to play the song with lots of palm muting and avoid sloppiness or else it's  
going to sound like a mess. 
 
The riff going into the first verse is: 
  +   +   +   +     +  +  +  + 
|-----------------|-------------| 
|-----------------|-------------| 
|----/6--/6---4p2-|-------------| 
|-----------------|-2-----------| 
|-0---------------|-0-----------| 
|-----------------|-------------| 
 
Play the following over the verse: 
  +   +   +   +     +   +   +       + 
|-----------------|-------------------------| 
|-----------2-3-2-|-------------------------| 
|-----------2-2-2-|-------------------------|  x2

  + + + +   + + + +   +       +       +   +     +       +       +   +

|---------|-2-------|-----0-------0-----------|-------------0-----------| 
|---------|---------|-3h5---0-3b--------------|-3h5---0-3b--------------| 
 
Play all that again, omitting the last two bars the second time. 
 
The following is played for the pre-Chorus ("And it all begins.."): 
 
  +    +   +   +     + + + +   +     +       +       +

The fills from the first two verses are approximated in the next verse by synth 
and acoustic twelve string guitar. The electric comes back in on "Don't need no 
fortune teller". 
 
The first 6 bars of the solo are doubled an octave above by synth. There's 4  
things you could do about this: 
a) Forget about it 
b) Play it an octave up. This will be played something like this: 
 +        + 
-10p9------------- 
--------10-------- 
----------11--12-- 
------------------ 
------------------ 
------------------ 
c) Get a friend to play it an octave up as above whilst you play the lower bit 
d) Use an octave pedal or a pitch shifter set at an octave above. Don't forget  
to turn it off after 6 bars, though
