Tuning: Drop-c  (C-G-C-F-A-D)

Main Riff is like this...
Listen to the song for strumming patterns and timing.
D|---------0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------|
A|---------0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------|
F|---------0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------|
C|-2---2-2-2-----2---2---2-2-2-----2---2---2-2-2-----8---5--7----|
G|-2---2-2-2-----2---2---2-2-2-----2---2---2-2-2-----8---5--7----|
C|-3p2-2-2-2-----3p2-3p2-2-2-2-----3p2-3p2-2-2-2-----8---5--7----|

Next Riff you'll hear is like this...
Again, listen to the song for strumming patterns and timing.
D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
F|------------------------------------------------------------------|
C|-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--8-8-8-8---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----|
G|-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--8-8-8-8---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----|
C|-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--8-8-8-8---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----|

And then what I'll call the chorus is like this...
Again, listen to the song.
D|-----------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
F|-----------------------------------------------------|
C|-10-10-10-10--7-7-7-7----10-10-10-10--12-12-12-12----|
G|-10-10-10-10--7-7-7-7----10-10-10-10--12-12-12-12----|
C|-10-10-10-10--7-7-7-7----10-10-10-10--12-12-12-12----|

Every other riff you hear in the song, except for the part where you hear
Stephen's version of a solo, being the bending of one note followed by a
bend release, is just a variation of one of the above noted riffs.  The
timing on this song in particular can be tricky without listening to the
song and either playing along or knowing exactly how it sounds, and how Stephen strums 
pattern.

Also keep in mind that these are just basic figures on what notes to play in
what order.  You will have to listen to the song on your own to determine
strumming patterns as well as timing, and number of time each chord is
played.

All in all, this is one of my favorite songs on the Diamond Eyes album,
which at this point in time has just been released.  I searched around for
hours to try and find a tab only to find to my dismay that the only tab that
existed was a Guitar Pro Tab.  Seeing as how I have no interest in
purchasing this software, I decided to write up my own tab for it, so that
others who are frustrated in trying to find a tab for this song can rest
easy knowing that someone was willing to sit down and show you how.

Cheers everyone.
