out of my reach for now but it's the main riffs hands down.

tuning correction - A E A D F# B - that was my fault

As a response to the other poster above me yes, 4 on the 3rd A and 9 on the 2nd E are the same note. While the note is the same the tone is a bit thicker on the 9 than the 4 and is why I tabbed it that way. I added a comment next to that riff depicting I thought, but not clearly enough it would seem.
