INTRO: 
Guitar1, (clean)
|-A--Em--G-|  The G is played like: |32003x| except 3rd time where 
its played like |320033|. The fills are below:|----------------2h3-3/5-5/7-5-||-2h3/5/7hb\-------------------||------------------------------||------------------------------| |------------------------------||------------------------------|
Then comes:Guitar2, (distorted)|---------------------------------------------||-2-2--2---2-0-2-2---2-2-2----2-2-2---2-2--2--||-2-2--4p2-2-0-2-2---2-2-4p2--2-2-2---2-2--2--||-2-2--2---2-0-2-2---2-2-2----2-2-2---2-2--2--||-0-0--0---0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0--0-0-0---0-0--0--||---------------------------------------------|
Then both guitars play G then D/F#, these can be played in two different ways either as open chords: G |320033|, D/F# |200232| or as barre chords: G |355233|, D/F# |254232|. The majority of the song revolves around A, G, and D/F#. Guitar2 continues playing this progression: |--A----G--D/F#--A----G--A----G--|
During the beginning of this, Guitar1 plays a little solo:|---------------------------------------------------||---------------------------------------------------||-6>---6-6hbhr6h7r6---------------------------------||-----9------------7/(14)---------12-11-12-11-------||-------------------------*12hbhr-------------*12>--||---------------------------------------------------|
And where the progression above holds on the G chord twice there is a G note played on the 5th fret of the D string in unison. Guitar2 then repeatly plays Riff1 until the quiet part: Riff1: |-A--G--D/F#-|
Under the progression there is a little riff:|--------------------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------------------||---------------5-5-4>---------------5-5-4>--------------------||---------4-5-7----------------4-5-7----------4-5-4-5-4h5p5----||-5>--5-7--------------5>--5-7------------------------------5--|
Now when Riff1 stops on the D/F# chord, slide up the F# note on the 2nd fret of the low-E string to a G note on the 3rd fret of the same string while partially muting the other strings.
Riff1 continues and this solo is played over it:|---------------------------------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------10>--8h10p8---8/14>---||-10>------------------------------9-11>--------------11--------||-----11h12-11-9-11-11h12p11p9----------------------------------||------------------------------12-------------------------------| |---------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------||--16hbhr-14*14hb>>--17fbfr-(18)--------------------------||----------------------------^-mute with another finger---||---------------------------------------------------------||---------------------------------------------------------||---------------------------------------------------------|
Now the quiet part comes in. It's just the A, G, D/F# chords played over, but arpeggiated with certain notes left out. A G A G A G D/F# G _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ^--distortion comes back x x x x x 3 0 x 0 x 0 x 0 3 2 0 2 0 2 0 0 2 0 2 x 2 0 4 0 x 0 x 0 x x x 3 x 3 x 3 2 - - - - - - -
Now Guitar2 starts playing Riff1 again.These fills are also played over it:|--------------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------------||--12p11p9-11p9--------------------------/11--12--14>>---||--------------10h12--10-9h10p9>-------------------------||--------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------------------||---------------5-5-4>---------------5-5-4>--------------------||---------4-5-7----------------4-5-7----------4-5-4-5-4h5p5----||-5>--5-7--------------5>--5-7------------------------------5--|
Riff1 ends on A and the song slows down again playing this Riff2:|--------------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------------||-------0-----0----------------------------0-----0-------||-----9-----0--------11-12-11-9-11-9-----9-----0---------||--10-----9----------0--0--0--0-0--0--10-----9-----------||--------------------------------------------------------| ^-------------------------------^-------Riff2 repeats.
And this solo comes during Riff2:|--------------------------------------------------------||----------------------------------------------19fb------||--------------------------------16fbfr-14>>--------X\---||-5>>--7>>>----5-5-/9-/11-/14>----------------------X\---||--------------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------------||--18h19r18h19r18r16h18r16h18r16--X\---------------------||---------------------------------X\---------------------||--------------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------------|
The X\'s are pick slides. The first pick slide should be fast and over the pickups on the indicated strings, this should give a similiar sound. The second is a tad bit slower well in front of the lead pickup. Riff2 then continues with distortion, and the song ends on an A chord.
