The main guitar on this song is probably in an alternate tuning, 
but it's easily playable without it. Once again I am tabbing this
for one guitar though there are clearly 2.

The man riff in the intro and verses revolves around a bend/pull off
that looks like this:

Fig 1:
E|-----------------|
B|-----------------|
G|-3b4p0-----------|
D|-5---------------|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|

After playing this in the verse 2x the next riff goes like this:
[note: since the song is fairly noisy/sloppy, some combination of
hitting all the notes like a chord and picking them individually
should work]

Fig 2:
E|-----------------------|
B|----0--0-----0-0-3p0---|
G|---5--5-----5-5-5------|
D|--3--3----2------------|
A|-----------------------|
