I noticed that there was only a bass tab for this piece and all the guitar tab 
aggregates were taking
the bass tab as an electric lead tab, so I decided this one needed doing.

Tuning: Standard

Rhythm Main
A lot of room for variation on this one, be creative.

Technically, two different guitars play one string, but it's easy enough solo.

After the keyboard break, there's more of the main riff, main chord, transition etc. 
Easy enough to figure out.
Once it starts picking up, there's also a sped up version of the transition.
Then:

Rhythm Main 2
The notes in between the chords are actually the keyboard, try artificial or natural 
harmonics for a better sound.

e||---9/10--10--10---9-----------9/10--10--10---9----------||

Lots of guitar feedback from the lead, then:
