Interlude: (This Section is muted with the palm)
---------------------------------------------------|--2--2--0--0----------2p0-----2--0-----------------|----------------5p0--------0---------0h5p0---------|---------------------------------------------------|---------------------------------------------------|---------------------------------------------------|
After 4 times played, the interlude is overdubbed once more. Then, goes to something like this...
---------------------------------------------------|--2--2--0--0--------2p0-----2----0-----------------|---------------5p0-------0------------5------------|---------------------------------------------------|---------------------------------------------------|---------------------------------------------------|
Small Lead Part during break:
------------------------------------------------------------------------|--12--------------------------------------------------------------------|------h16---14--------------14p11h12p11---------------------------------|--------------------------------------------h14---12h14p12------12h14---|------------------------------------------------------------h14---------|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------|----------------------------------------------------------|------------------12----12---12---14---16-----------------|-----14--14--14---12---(14---------------)---14-----------|-----14--14--14------------------------------14-----------|----------------------------------------------------------|
No idea if this last part of the lead is right but I think it's close. Outro: (Keep in mind that the Chorus is playing at the same time, so you'll here the other arpeggios as well.)
------------------------------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------|---16---14~~~16---12--------12---16---14~~~16---12-------12-------|------------------------12-----------------------------12---------|------------------------------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------|
Then...The fancy part in between

And...The Second little fancy part
-----------------------------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------------------------|--16--14~~~~12--------------12--------12--14---------------|-----------------12---12h14-----12h14----------------------|-----------------------------------------------------------|
Well, there you have it. I think this is pretty accurate. Tuning the B string up to C# really helps. Also, if you want the same tone as the song, it's real easy. I use one of those compressor/limiter pedals and compress the line a little. Send that signal straight into a mixer or ANYTHING BUT a guitar amp because it's a direct line he's using.
