Halestorm - Love Bites So Do I tab

Halestorm
Love Bites (So Do I)
Drop D tuning (DADgbe)

This is my first tab submitted here. I like to play a lot of the open D notes with
the open A string to make it sound a little heavier.

p = pull off
h = hammer on
b = bend
br = slowly release or let down the note you are bending
/s/ = slide to
v = vibrato (pretty much whatever your not bending in the solo)

Post-Chorus
(1:38)

g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------6-5-3-0-----------------------------------|
D|0-3-5-0-------------------------------------------|

(2:08) Play very quickly: I tremelo pick the low D string and land the the 3rd and 5th 
frets and it works out to sound the same.
e|--------------------------------------------------|
b|--------------------------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
D|0-3-5-0-------------------------------------------|

(2:13)
e|--------------------------------------------------|
b|--------------------------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|------3-------------------------------------------|
A|0--3--1-------------------------------------------|
D|0--3----------------------------------------------|

Solo (If you have heavy gauge strings like me you need to really bend these notes to get 
them to sound like the song)
(2:20)
e|-------/s/-13v-15b-15v---20b-20v------------------|
b|/s/-15v-------------------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|

while bending fret 20 (the note G) on the b string:
(2:24)
e|-------20-----------------------------------------|
b|-20b////////-20br---------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|

(2:26)
e|--------------------------------------------------|
b|-18-20-18-20v-------------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|

(2:27) (Very Similar)
e|-------17-20-20-17--------------------------------|
b|-18-20-------------20-18--------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|

back to the chorus

At the very end there is some kind of variation on the break at 1:44
It is similar to this:
(2:59)
e|--------------------------------------------------|
b|--------------------------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|7-0-5-0-7-0-5-0-888-775-0-------------------------|
D|7-0-5-0-7-0-5-0-888-775-0-------------------------|

Also note at spots like (0:40) and (1:21) it sounds like the guitarist is just pulling 
off these notes:
e|--------------------------------------------------|
b|--------------------------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
D|5p3p0---------------------------------------------|

And that ends the song. Its a fun song to play and was good practice to learn by ear. 
Hope it helps.
