*
Before I start I'd like to say that there are different ways to play
this opening, as there are several layers of slide guitar. But here is my
interpretation of one way to play it, using a live video of a performance
of the song as my semi-source for my tab. Take it as a simple guide, not an exact
science.

Some other points to know:

1. It starts off quite faint

2. Keep your slide on your pinky

3. This is a monsterous beast, best of luck to everyone and take your time

***Note: Everything up until the repeated open D and the end was sent in by
Kyle Rogers (bkrogers717@msn.com). Thanks man. Great stuff. The solo hasn't
changed much, except for the position, which is how Adam actually plays it.

This part can only be played the way Adam plays it by using a guitar with a
fixed bridge setup like a Les Paul. The string is actually plucked between
the bridge and the stop tail piece.Try it, you'll be astounded.
