Tuning EADF#BE  Capo 6th fret
     

Intro (the 02s and 01s are all hammered on)
     
|----------------|      |----------------| 
|----------------|      |----------------| 
|----------------|      |01----01---1----| 
|02-22-02-22-----| (x2) |---2-----02--2--| (x2) 
|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|      |0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|

|----------------|--------------|----------------|----------------|
                   (short bar)
     
     
Verse patterns (1st one is also main riff)
     
|----------------|0---------------|     |--------0-------| 
|--------0-------|--------0-------|     |-----2-------2--| 
|-----0-------0--|-----0-------0--|     |---3-------3----| 
|---2-------2----|---2-------2----| and |--2---2---2---2-| 
|--2---2---2---2-|--2---2---2---2-|     |0---0---0---0---| 
|0---0---0---0---|0---0---0---0---|     |----------------|
 ("strange face...")                      ("so pale...")
     
|----------------|----------------|
|----------------|----------------|
|-----2--3----3--|-3---3---2---0--|
|---0-------0---0|---0---0---0---0|
|--0---0---0---0-|--0---0---0---0-|
|2---2---2---2---|2---2---2---2---|
              ("where...          (spring is sprung)")
     
     
there are some minor picking variations: the most common is for 
the second bar of the first verse-pattern to become:
     
|0------------0--|
|-------0--------|
|-----0---0------| (usually just before going into the 
|---2-------2----|  second verse-pattern) 
|--2---2---2---2-|
|0---0---0---0---|
