This is pretty much correct.

Also, i have the MM4 but it hasn\'t the FX to produce the intro sound; 
Lee used a Digitech RP7 (now contained in the GNX series) as well as the 
Line 6 stompboxes, im sure there is an FX on the filter pedal as
the sound produced isnt just from tremolo picking.

For Guitar 2, you\'ll prob need a compression pedal to take the \'edge\'
off the open string sound.

Ive included the live ending an some live variations to the song,
based on the ozzfest recordings i have an what i have seen live.

Any questions/comments email me.


Guitar 1: (maybe w/ little delay + maybe v. fast tremolo-pedal FX 
an also some sustain effect)

Tremolo pick v. fast.  Repeat up to 00:41.

| listen for down slide @ end of 00:06 slide back up exactly 1 second later | D|-------17-----------17\15-------------15/17---------------------|A|-------15-----------15\13-------------13/15---------------------|F|-------14-----------14\12-------------12/14---------------------|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|G|----------------------------------------------------------------|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Then at 00:23 the picking changes to single notes played v. fast. When i saw this live, both times, Guitar 1 (Lee) plays something like this by placing 1 finger down on the fret, playing the note an then lifting the finger off so the note doesnt ring out. He then moves onto the next note:
(FX are still the same as before)This isnt 100% but it sounds like what was played live an kinda fits.D|--17--------17-------17-------15-------15---------------17------|A|----15--------15-------15-------13-------13------13-------15----|F|------14--------14----------------12-------12--12-----------14--|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|G|----------------------------------------------------------------|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2: comes in @ end of 00:04 x4 (Mute after each section to stop ringing)D|----------------------------------------------------------------|A|----------------------------------------------------------------|F|----------------------------------------------------------------|C|--0-0-0-0--------0-0-0-0--------0-0-0-0--------0-0-0-0----------|G|--0-0-0-0--------0-0-0-0--------0-0-0-0--------0-0-0-0----------|C|--0-0-0-0--------0-0-0-0--------0-0-0-0--------0-0-0-0----------|
\"Point your finger...\" Guitar 1 slows down so each note can be heard but it is still fast
Guitar 2 plays this (below) after 4th repeat of above riff @ 00:24D|----------------------------------------------------------------|A|----------------------------------------------------------------|F|----------------------------------------------------------------|C|--0-0--------5-5-5-5-------1-1-0-0-0-0------0-0------6-6-6-6----|G|--0-0--------5-5-5-5-------1-1-0-0-0-0------0-0------6-6-6-6----|C|--0-0--------5-5-5-5-------1-1-0-0-0-0------0-0------6-6-6-6----|(Mute after each section to stop ringing)

Both Guitars: @ end Of 00:41 (\"Here inside, won\'t be here to stay...\")Verse (with chorus effect + maybe some flange)D|--3--------3--------3--3-------3--------3--3-----------3--------|A|--3--------3--------3--3--3----3--------3--3--3--------3--------|F|--0--------0--------0--0-------0--------0--0-----------0--------|C|--5--------2--------5----------2--------5--------------2--------|G|--6--------3--------6----------3--------6--------------3--------|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|

Then repeat Intro and verse once more following the same timing. The only difference is that guitar 2 comes in with guitar 1 imediately after verse (above).
Guitar 1:Plays this over the 2nd repeat of the verse while guitar 2 playsthe normal verse(with chorus effect + clean tone + a slight echo)D|----------------------------------------------------------------|A|----------------------------------------------------------------|F|--12/14--14\12--------------------------------------------------|C|----------------12--10--12----12/15--14--12--------------9/12---|G|--------------------------------------------15--12--10----------|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2 continues this riff while Guitar 1 plays this over it:(distortion an mayb a wah or sustain - something to make the notes ring - i just hold them so they ring + the slides are optional as they too make the sound more \'whiney\')D|----------------------------------------------------------------|A|--------------------------------------------------------11------|F|-/14--10--12--/14--10--12--/14--10--12--/14-10--12----12------12|C|----------------------------------------------------12------12--|G|----------------------------------------------------------------|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|

At UK Ozzfest, the guitar 1 (Lee) began the overlay in this way:(distortion + chorus, again slides are optional) D|----------------------------------------------------------------|A|----------------------------------------------------------------|F|-/10-10--12--14---/10--12--14---/10--12--14---/10-12------------|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|G|----------------------------------------------------------------|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|Then after the 12,12,11 on the C,F and A strings, the overlay goesback to normal starting with the 14 on the F and not the 12.
The live ending to the song played at all shows is this:(Normally has a flange effect on over the distortion)D|----------------------------------------------------------------|A|-----10--10h11--10--11/13~--------------------------------------|F|--12------------------------------------------------------------|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|G|----------------------------------------------------------------|C|----------------------------------------------------------------| | Let the slide ring |
On the album, the interlude after it is this (this took a while tofigure out):(Chorus effect maybe w/ slight flange to create a watery soundafter each note so it rings better)D|-----0---------0-----------0---------0-----------0---------0----|A|---------0---------0-----------0---------0-----------0---------0|F|-------2---------2-----------2---------2-----------2---------2--|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|G|-0----------0-----------3---------3-----------0---------0-------|C|----------------------------------------------------------------|
