Ok, this is why I tabbed it out using a capo at the 4th fret. While I was
figuring it out I came accross this part (at about 1:43 in the song)
                     /     \
|---5---5---5-5---5- -----4- ----------------|
|------------------- -5/9--- --7---9-7-5---5-|
|-4---4---4-----4--- ------- 4---4-------0---|
|------------------- ------- ----------------|
|------------------- ------- ----------------|
|------------------- ------- ----------------|

I was going crazy because I couldn't figure out anything that sounded quite
right, but then I tried the capo and it worked, and the rest of song still
worked too (the open G string is then B), so that's why I did it. Otherwise
you can play the song just fine in standard tuning. I did this before I saw
them live and saw that they weren't using capos, so then of course I was all
confused. I don't know, maybe the recorded version is with a capo, but I
guess the only way to know for sure is to find out from the Sloan boys
themselves. I'd really like to know, but whatever. I guess whichever way you
like best. Anyway, if anyone actually finds out how they did it on the album
make sure they let me know!
