Goin' Out West

	  		Verse/Intro Variation  

e|------------------------------------------------|  
B|------------------------------------------------|  
G|------------------------------------------------|  
D|-5----------4-----------------------------------|  
A|-----------------------6------------------------|  
C|--0-3-0-0-----3-0-3-0----3-0-3-0-0--0-3-0-0-3-0-|  

then  

E|------------------------------------------------|  
B|------------------------------------------------|  
G|------------------------------------------------|  
D|-5----------4-----------------------------------|  
A|-----------------------6--3---------------------|  
C|--0-3-0-0-----3-0-3-0-------0-3-0---------------|  

The timing of the "C" string notes is awkaward to tab out, but you'll get it by  
listening, it's actually pretty easy.  





The "Distorted" Riff comes up a few times, and varies off of these chords.  

e|----------------------------|  
B|----------------------------|  
G|-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5-----|  
D|-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5-----|  
A|-1/3-3-3-3----1/3-3-3-3-----|  
C|----------------------------|  

The timing is sort of weird, and sometimes he throws in mutes/odd harmonics based around   
those chords.  

And occasionally, he does this this tiny riff back into the other riffs, it looks like  
this. it's most profound at 1:07ish  

e|---------------------------------|  
B|---------------------------------|  
G|-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5----------|  
D|-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5----------|  
A|-1/3-3-3-3----1/3-3-3-3----------|  
C|------------------------h6h5h4h0-|  

The chorus is similar to the distorted riff, but starts higher.  

e|-----------------|  
B|-----------------|  
G|-8/10-10-10-10---|  
D|-8/10-10-10-10---|  
A|-6/8--8--8--8----|  
C|-----------------| x 2  

Then  

e|----------------------------|  
B|----------------------------|  
G|-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5-----|  
D|-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5-----|  
A|-1/3-3-3-3----1/3-3-3-3-----|  
C|----------------------------|  

Then back to  

e|-----------------|  
B|-----------------|  
G|-8/10-10-10-10---|  
D|-8/10-10-10-10---|  
A|-6/8--8--8--8----|  
C|-----------------|  

And he goes up to a D, strums it a few times during the end of the chorus, and goes back   
intro the verse.  

e|-------------------|  
B|-------------------|  
G|-10/12-12-12-12-12-|  
D|-10/12-12-12-12-12-|  
A|-8-/10-10-10-10-10-|  
C|-------------------|
