Drop low E-string to A D Chords: B x244xx D xx023x A x0222x Weird A x0210x (Hit the chords=20 like power chords.

The song pretty well runs=20 on the B-D-A-Asus? set for the majority of the song. I believe each=20 line uses all four verse chords.Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
ChorusThis is hazy part. It's hard to make out the changes but the=20 chords are G-D-A or some variation thereof. Your mission my fellow Hip=20 fans is to figure out the timing. (Actually you will have to do that for=20 the whole song I am just supplying the chords, but listening to the song=20 will be more than sufficient.) I have "attempted" to tab out this section without timing. A listen=20 will reveal all. The "xxxx" mean you palm mute/bang the strings without=20 making a note/scrape those strings.)
