Devildriver - Bitter Pill tab

Bitter Pill
Devildriver
Pray For Villains


This is my first proper tab, so be kind!

Intro (when it kicks in at full volume)
Chords are shown below each line and are all palm-muted power chords (5ths).

D:|--------------------------------------||

Play this twice and for the clean bit just play the last line (without the 12p10) and palm-mute.


Chorus

C:|0---0-2-3---3-5-------3-2---2-3-0---0-2-3---3-----------------3-||

Twice

There's a lead bit throughout the chorus, but I can't work it out... Any ideas?

For the verse, do the intro with another guitar mirroring on the low C with palm-muting.

Play this twice through, but swap the fourth part for the second of the two following lines.
And for the second time through, miss the 3rd and 4th parts altogether and play:

The (8) here is very hard to play and get into a comfortable fingering for the next 13, 
I don't play it.

I know it's not perfect, and some of the stretches are impossible standing up, but this 
how i play it...
I put the tab as intermediate, because mostly it's not too hard!
Any corrections? (Specifically for the Breakdown and/or Solo) Don't hesitate to 
give a sugggestion!
Thanks for checking out my tab.
