WHAT IS AND WHAT SHOULD NEVER BE Guitar Tab
A13 E9 and these varied forms
e----------|----0---------7-------------------------------------- B---7------|----7---------0-------------------------------------- G---6------|----7---------7-----7-------------------------------- D---5------|----6---------6-----6-------------------------------- A----------|--------------------7-------------------------------- E----------|-----------------------------------------------------
I suggest to do a little ad-lib with the E9 chord variations until you find something that works and sounds good to you.
Chorus : (heavy guitar sound with distortion) notation : h - hammer p - pulloff b - bend

notation : s = slide (e.g. xsy means pick note x and slide from note x to note y)

Note that on the solo if you aren't playing slide just bar the A on the 14th fret and the B on the 16th fret with your ring finger. It allows you to let the notes ring and makes the fingering very easy.
Sometimes I substitute the following A chord and B chords for the A on the 14th and the B on the 16th respectivley, but still play the same notes. Obviously you don't do this if you play the solo with a slide.

Outro : Distorted, play to the end of the song. After playing the following part twice, from the third time on mute the strings in between the notes that are played to get that "chuka" effect.
