SECOND PART - 4/4 time
Gt. 1 (Jonny) - Jonny plucks these octaves fast with his first and second fingers, and they are played slightly off-beat

It's the Devil's way now... There is no way out...
Gt. 2 (Ed) - Ed picks the high and low notes of these octaves alternatively, and adds distortion for the shouty bit

THIRD PART - Live, Jonny thrashes around with 'that effect' throughout the mental bit (ie. the one heard during the interlude
in Airbag, where his guitars sounds like the whole thing's falling apart and loads of notes crash together). I've just tabbed
out the added bits you can hear on the album recording here.
