Slide down the entire time and use a lot of bending. Just follow this and
it should sound fine.

Go back to main riff

After the main riff he starts to just hack away at the strings. 
I usually play this.
E|----------------------000~--------------------------------------------------||
B|----------------------000~--------------------------------------------------||

D|-000-------17-17-17-17^~----------------------------------------------------||

D|-000-15-------15-15-15^~----------------------------------------------------||

Near the end
E|-----xx-xx-x--x-----x--x-x---------------------------------------------------------||
B|-----xx-xx-x--x-----x--x-x---------------------------------------------------------||
G|-----xx-xx-x--x-----x--x-x---------------------------------------------------------||

A|-000-xx-xx-x--x-000-x--x-x---------------------------------------------------------||
D|-000-xx-xx-x--x-000-x--x-x---------------------------------------------------------||
      Do the X's near the 15th fret. Try to get some
      harmonics.
Ending
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
D|-000-0---------------------------------------------------------------------||
A|-000-0---------------------------------------------------------------------||
D|-000-0---------------------------------------------------------------------||

That's it. Might seem like a lot of riffs but it's
only a 1:00 minute song. Only play each riff once.

ok, from what i can tell, the beginning guitar drone is the sound of buzzo
tuning his low E string down to D, to accomodate dropped-D tuning.  he hits
the open D5 chord  a couple times.  then when the 'riff' starts, don't get
confused with the descending bass scale that mark plays - it sounds very much
like guitar, but it's not.  the guitar starts about two beats into the
measure or so, and it starts with a single note slide up to about the 12th
fret.  do some wide-ass vibrato the whole way up and for the whole 'riff'.
see, it's tough to tell where buzzo goes on the neck because the vibrato is
so wide - he could be within 2 frets either way!!  from the 12th fret,
casually work your way up, either following the pentatonic scale with the
diminished notes added or just go chromatically.  most of the longer notes
are on the dots (i.e. 12, 15, 17, 19).  just stay on the low E string EXCEPT
for the end of the riff - i know that at the end of the 'riff' (it's repeated
a couple of times) he plays a 15 on the low E, 17 on the A, and 17 on the D.
he probably also goes in this chord for the muted higher part about 1/3 of
the way thru the riff. listen, you'll see what i mean.  it's very important
to play each note hard and alone - if you let the different notes blend in,
it sounds like ass.  also, using your neck pickup might help, but then again,
i don't have a gibson like buzzo - i just have a samick, a roland, and an
ibanez RG-560!  it's pretty hard to get that noise-rock tone with my shit...
