    It's actually called Hate To Say I Told You So, unless you're talking about a different song, but it sounds like you're talking about that. MxTabs.net actually has a good one of this song. It's a fiarly simple tune, but still pretty fun.
     
  3. if you haven't already looked at the tabs, then this is a VERY good song to learn by ear for a beginner. Simple, repeating, and such.
     
  4. The main riff is

    E-5-5-0-3-3-3-0-8-8-8-0-1-1-1-1-
     
  5. if you wanna get technical, it's

    D----------------------3-3-3-----------------
    A--5-5-----3-3-3-----------------0h1-1-1-1-1
    E--------0-----------0-----------------------
     
  6. actually, if you want to get really technical, I believe (i could be wrong, however) the hives' bassist plays it


    G------------------------------------------
    D------------------------------------------
    A-5-5-5-------------8-8-8---------------
    E--------0-8-8-8-0--------0-6-6-6-----
