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

e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
G----------13-----12---10--12-----12----12---10-15-10-15--12--------------------------
D----------x------x----x---x------x-----x----x--x--x--x---x---------------------------
A----------11-----10---8---10-----10----10---8--13-8--13--10--------------------------
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 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

e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
G-----------10-----9---6---9-------9-------8--6--10-6-10-9----------------------------
D-----------x------x---x---x-------x-------x--x--x--x-x--x----------------------------
A-----------8------7---4---7-------7-------6--4--8--4-8--7----------------------------
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  It's the Devil's way now...     There is no way         out...



Guitars one and two play these patterns throughout the entire second section, up until the last 'PAYING ATTENION'
After the 'Because...', guitar 3 (Thom) joins in with distortion



Gt. 3 (Thom)

   You have not been paying attention, paying attention, paying attention, paying attention






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.
