Okay so I looked at the existing tab on the internet for this song and although close, 
version builds upon the basic note structure from the song using "power chord" 
makes it significantly easier to play not having to jump up and down the neck.

The power chords are used with a few fingering changes here and there.
You're basically between the 5th and 6th fret the entire song. EASY!

For the rythm, I stole it from the other posters. Did not verify its accuracy yet...
