I Choose guitar tab

Album: Ixnay on the Hombre

Track: 8
Title: I Choose


* - repeat about 4 times
x - left hand mute
The main part of this song is accurate but the solo I'm not so sure
about.All the finger positions there are pretty accurate it is 
just the strumming and the high fret notes which are difficult. 

Intro:  Play once with guitar only then 3 times with bass and drums

|-7--7--7-xxxx-3--3--5--5-5-|

Verse: Just Bass and Percussion until "When I was a..." then play 
       the INTRO again 4 times.
Chorus riff 1:  Play this 2 times...
