Quarter note = 80 (in cut time). Standard tuning. Tabbed where it felt good on the fretboard.
This one demonstrates the craft and uniqueness of S-K songs: Just three little riffs on two guitars blends into a memorable but always surprising whole. A riff (2a) blend into the next (2b) leaving you sad that the first riff is gone only to be delighted when the next riff is here.
There is a little math rock in this. "One Beat" may have something to do with the lyrics but it's also about the song structure: The drums start it off but where is the one beat? Guitar 2 starts on the D5 but the verse starts with F#5. The chorus seems to starts in 3 beat of a measure. It sure works though.

Riff 2a and 2b are beautiful together and are over too quickly but it's all part of the song.
