Riff #2 begins with vocals on 2nd half of clean tone part:

|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------8---7---------8--8--8--8--8---10--10--10---7--7--7--7-7--------------|
|---9-------------9----9--9--9--9--9----9---9---9----7--7--7--7-7-------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|


End:  This part is kind of tricky, the chords in parentheses are arpeggiated 
(for those of you not familiar with this, it requires strumming through the 
notes individually and quickly in a smooth motion).  Also, all the chords 
that are only open strings are played with upstrokes, this is important to 
get the right rhythm and feel of the part.

|---x---x------------------------------------------------------------------------3-------------------|
|---x---x------------x---x---x---x----(x)---x--------(x)---x-------x---x----3------------------------|
|---x---x---x-------x---x---x---x----(4)--------4---(2)--------2---x---x---4---4---7---9---11--------|
|---2-----------2----4-------5--------(5)-------------(5)------------5--------5---7---x---x----x-----|
|---2----------------------------------------------------------------------------5---5---5---7----9--|
|---x----------------------------------------------------------------------------3---3---------------|

2nd time through is the same but at the end this progression replaces the ascending octave chords
|---5----------------------------------------------------|
|---7----------------------------------------------------|
|---7----x-----------------------------------------------|
|---7----4-----then slide down into next phrase----------|
|---5----5-----------------------------------------------|
|---5----------------------------------------------------|

The final time through this progression, end with this chord:

|----7----|
|----7----|
|----8----|
|----9----|
|----9----|
|----7----|

2nd part of End:

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------3------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------3------------------|
|---x---x---x-------------------------x---x---x-------------------------------4----2--2-------------|
|---2---2---2----12---12slide11---2---2---2----11--11slide14---12-----5---4---7---------------------|

|---x---x---x----10---10slide9-----x---x---x----9----9slide12----10----3----2---2-------------------|

The only difference in the 4 measure of the end are the changes in the octave chord progression, 
which I'm sure you can hear, and they are:

|---------------------|
|---------------------|
|----7---7slide9------|
|---------------------|
|----5---5slide7------|
|---------------------|

This guy's a piece of ***. He's posted pretty much every song tabbed by Jade on their official site and tried to pass it off as his own. Id love to shove his guitar up his ass.
