~~~~~~

All guitars in standard tuning.

There's other awesome sections to the song, but this is the main part.
The other guitar parts use the same notes for the most part anyway, so
it's not too difficult to work through the rest of the song.

The main guitar throughout the song,
starting in the above measure, is playing this melody:

1st:----------------------------------|
2nd:----------------------------------|
3rd:-3//-5/-6//-5/-8//-6/-5//-6/-5//--|
4th:----------------------------------|
5th:----------------------------------|
6th:----------------------------------|

(tremolo picked)

Slight variations through the song in timing,
that you just have to listen to to get...

at about 14:50 (the second measure after drums come back in)
the main guitar plays this riff

1st:-----------------------------------------------------|
2nd:-----------------------------------------------------|
3rd:-10//-12/-13//-12/-15//-17/-18/-20/-17//-18/-17/-18--|
4th:-----------------------------------------------------|
5th:-----------------------------------------------------|
6th:-----------------------------------------------------|

1st:---------------------------------------------|
2nd:---------------------------------------------|
3rd:-15//-14/-13//-12/-11//-10/-8/-6/-5//-6/-5/--|
4th:---------------------------------------------|
5th:---------------------------------------------|
6th:---------------------------------------------|

Go back to main riff until about 15:50ish,
(again, just listen to the song to get the timing right)
where this is played instead:

1st:----------------------------|
2nd:----------------------------|
3rd:-10///-9/-8////-10/-6/-5//--|
4th:----------------------------|
5th:----------------------------|
6th:----------------------------|

Back to main riff until:
