    basic riff (from Pork Soda - what recording are you using? Must be down a half step for some reason):

    G---------------19-------------18--18-----18---

    D----18------------18---------------------------

    A-------17-------------17-----------------------

    E--10------10--------------10-------------------

    alternate (there are a lot this is just one)

    G---------------19-------------18--18-----18-18

    D----18------------18----------17--17-----17-17

    A-------17-------------17-----------------------

    E--10------10--------------10------------------

    Of course he plays it on a 6, with the D on the 15th fret of the B string.

    Now, if somebody could show me the funky breakdown, I'd be happy. :)
