Ohh....the last time i heard this song and tried playing it was a couple of years back......i cant remember how the tune goes though!

I play this song with my band, but since we have two guitarists and need one to play rhythm, I usually just play:

|-5-0-7-0-8-0-7-0-5-0-3-0-2-0-3-0-|

On the high e-string. I think Chuck might do this an octave above or something, but I'm not really sure. It could be the same kind of pattern but starting on 12, since it sounds like a harmony in the song.

I don't have my electric on me right now so I can't tell you about the tapped notes but I'll tell you for sure there are no open notes. Keep the first finger on the 12th fret.

at around 2 12 you can see him tapping.... he has always his left index finger anchored so no open notes. and apartment its tapped in the 8-5th frets

anyone have second opinions

EDIT: ok re watched and he DOES tap open strings i think. and i cant recognize where the hell his tapping.... please help me.

Haha, I play it differently, but he is doing the same notes as what you have. He is just playing the tapped notes an octave lower and tapping the high E on the twelfth fret rather than hitting it open. . . . . Hehe. Leave it to Chuck.
