I tabbed the main riff this way so you don't have to cross strings on the
8th (faster) notes. You can play it another way if you can't stretch.

That's pretty much everything worth tabbing.
The rest of the solos are way too fast.
On the last chorus just gradually go from closed to open wah with the main riff.

Thanks for playing! Give me feedback.
