Okay.  I redid "Buzzard" because the last time i did 
it the spacing got screwed up and i found some errors.  Sonically, 
it's all there, but there is an easier way to play it.  :)  
Standard Tuning.  (ha!)

Well, like the rest of the album, the song is one-half step down.

The intro is played with harmonics, running sixteenth notes, but 
be careful.  The ninth fret harmonics are intended to sound a 
perfect third above the open string  (these can also be played 
at the fourth fret, but i found the sound more resonant at the 
ninth.).  Being off the fret the slightest quarter of an inch 
will give you a different pitch (listen to Alice In Chains "
Again" at the breakdown (doot-doot) part, both of those two 
different harmonics are near the third fret.). Well, here goes.

Riff A
E-|-----------------------------|
B-|-----------------------------|
G-|-----------------------------|
D-|-------------------------7---|
A-|---------4--------7----------|
E-|---4------------------7------|
NaturalHarmonics throughout

For the next riff, octaves are used, still using slow tremolo picking
(running 16ths) for 2 beats per note.
Riff B

For the heavy distorton, it sounds like Tooke uses an overdrive 
pedal over a naturally dirty tone in the main channel.  For the 
verses, Tooke switches off the overdrive and plays straight 
through the amp, which is already set to have a slightly dirty 
sound.  These are the chords to the verse below. 

Riff C
___G#m6____E____
E-|-(0)---------|
B-|-(4)----0----|  It really sounds like the E is on top of that
G-|--4-----1----|  G#6 chord, but I can't be sure how travis fingers
D-|--6-----2----|  it...it's implied nevertheless.  For simplicity, it
A-|--6-----2----|  could simply be picked as the notes not in 
E-|--4-----0----|  parenthesis.

Then riff A, Riff C, riff B with Fill 1 below :
Listen to song for placement.
