G#----5\3----5\3----5\3----5\3----5\3----5\3----
E ----0------0------0------0------0------0------

from there, just tap the back of yr guitar, either on the body or the neck, and let it gently
feedback. don't use too much distortion, or it will get much too high-pitched.....

lee's part...

during the intro, as well as at the end of each of T's lines during the verses, lee plays 
this:

G#---13---12---8---19----15----
E ---0----0----0---0-----0----- play this repeatedly during the intro, but only after T's
G#---13---12---8---19----15---- lines during the verse....but, while T is singing, play
E ---0----0----0---0-----0----- little bits of this figure, especially the one based on
G#----------------------------- the 12th fret.....
E -----------------------------

for the chorus, lee plays this with a slide:
                                     keep this slide very long
G#-----------------------------------13\(3)/8-----------
E -----------------------------------13\(3)/8-----------
G#---15/17\15----15/17\15---15\13----13\(3)/8-----------
E -----------------------------------13\(3)/8-----------
G#------------------------------------------------------
E ------------------------------------------------------

right after the slide part ends, lee plays this riff, based on the intro riff

G#----19---15------13---12---8-----19---15-----12------
E ----0----0-------0----0----0-----0----0------0-------
G#----19---15------13---12---8-----19---15-----12------
E-----0----0-------0----0----0-----0----0------0-------
G#-----------------------------------------------------
E -----------------------------------------------------
during the jam, lee just does a bunch of crazy slide stuff....

ok, here's the structure of the song....

   Thurston's                  Lee's

   Intro                       (out)
   Verse chords               intro/verse riff(repeatedly)
   
   Verse chords x2            intro/verse riff (only when t is not singing)
    (w/ vocals)              
   
   Chorus x3                  lee slide riff/lee chorus riff
                              
   Sonic Jam tremolo          wacky slide stuff

   return                     light feedback

   outro                      outro

just listen to the record, and the parts will all fall in place
   peace out....larsen....

 The rest of the song is dead easy to play the noise at the end is by tapping
 the neck gently when a small amount of distortion is on.
