E|--0-----0----|B|--0-----0----|G|--0-----0----|D|--14----10---|A|--14----10---|E|--0-----8----| Strum these chords a few times, listen to the song to get the pattern
E|--------------|B|--------------|G|----12----12--|D|-12----12-----|A|--------------|E|--------------| A couple seconds into the strumming, there is either a bass or a second guitar part the hits these notes

Also I have stretched the bar out, but this is played sort of fast.
E|-------0----------0------|B|---3-------3----3-----3--|G|--4---4---4----4-4---4---|D|-------------------------|A|-------------------------|E|-------------------------| This is one measure, you play these back to back, no pause in between

There are x's in the spots where you kinda dampen or mute the chord

I'm not going to bother with the solo because its pretty horrible. The song has great potential for a solo but it doesn't really work out.
E|-------------------------------5--5-5-5-5--|B|-------------------------------5--5-5-5-5--|G|-----------------------5--5--5-5--5-5-5-5--|D|--2--2--2-2---2--2-2---5--5--5-5--5-5-5-5--|A|--2--2--2-2---2--2-2---3--3--3-3--3-3-3-3--|E|--0--0--0-0---0--0-0-----------------------| So heres the ending...
E|-------6---4/5------------6-5---------|B|-------6-x-4/5----------x-6-5---------|G|-------6-x-4/5----------x-6-5---------|D|---------x--------------x-------2-----|A|--x-/6----------x-x-/6----------2-----|E|--x-------------x-x-------------0-----| I think this part is played with a slide or the same effect the solo is played in + a lot of distortion.
