What If I Don't  Forty Foot Echo

This song was actually pretty difficult to tab out with all the
distortion covering up one of the guitars, and no live video to
get estimates off of... Some parts are probably wrong but this is
what I feel is pretty close, or at least a good base to go off of.
Additionally, as comments have said on my previous tabs, you may
not need this in Drop D to play, I just feel most songs which
heavily use power chords are easier to play in Drop D, as you can
simply bar the fret. If you'd like to play this in standard,
simply replace the low D string fret numbers with a value two less
than what it currently is (Example: 8 on the low D would then be
6 instead.)

INTERLUDE

Heavy distortion here (flanger I believe?) on the guitar, but I believe
it only plays one note the entire time.
If you aren't able to somehow replicate how it actually sounds, you
could probably have G1 play the verse part, but 5x and ending with the
latter part of the PRE-CHORUS. During this, G2 could simply play the
moving harmonics (as G1 does in the latter part of the PRE-CHORUS)
throughout this bit.
If this is a little unclear, leave me a comment and I can try to tab it.
