Glad to see you went through with it! A few corrections though:

The end of riff 2 is harmonized in fifths (and I believe there's an open power chord instead of a 2nd chug):

Riff 2
Guitar 1:
e--------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------|
G--------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------|
A-7p5------7p5----2----------2-3-5-----------------|
E------0-0------0-0----2-3-5-----------------------|
* * *

Guitar 2:
e---------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------|
G--------------------------------2------------------|
D--------------------------2-4-5--------------------|
A-7p5------7p5----2----4-5--------------------------|
E------0-0------0-0---------------------------------|
* * *

Riff 3 is also harmonized in fifths. (Notes in parentheses are played by Gtr. 2)

Riff 3
e------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------|
G-----------------------------------------(10)(9)------------|
D----------9--------10---------7------------8--7--(10)(9)----|
A----------7---------8---------5-------------------8---7-----|
E--0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0--------------------|
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Riff 4 is actually pretty different from Riff 3. Not completely sure on this:

Gtr. 1
e--------------------------------------------|-------------|
B--------------------------------------------| |
G--------------------------------------------| |
D----------------------------------8-7-------| |
A--2-2-222---8-8-888---5-5-555---------8-7---| |
E--------------------------------------------| |
* * *** * * * * * * *** |-- First 4
Gtr. 2 | times
e--------------------------------------------| |
B--------------------------------------------| |
G---------------------------------10-9-------| |
D-----------10---------7---------------10-9--| |
A--2---------8---------5---------------------| |
E--0-----------------------------------------|-------------|

Then after that I guess they just pedal the lowest note in the chord:

e---------------------------------|
B---------------------------------|
G---------------------------------|
D-----------10---------7----------|
A--2---------8-8-8-8-8-5-5-5-5-5--|
E--0-0-0-0-0----------------------|

Riff 5

Chord is different and again the ending is harmonized in fifths (top notes Gtr. 2).

e----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G---------------------------------------------------10-9----------7-9--|
D----------------------------------------------------8-7-10-9-7-9-5-7--|
A--------------3--------------3--------------3------------8-7-5-7------|
E--0-0-0-0-0-0-1--0-0-0-0-0-0-1--0-0-0-0-0-0-1-------------------------|
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I'm not saying this is 100% accurate but mess around with these and see if they sound better. And don't get disheartened about your mistakes; I've been transcribing for years and I still screw up a looooot.

Thanks so much for the help. I had a feeling Riff 5 was wrong, I had no idea I was that far out though. Thanks for the encouragement, I'll make the changes and continue to work on another Arkham Witch song to see how I go.

I played through what you had down imspazzen and to my ears you were 100% spot on. Being that far out on that Riff 5 is really bothering me haha. But yeah, I've made the changes and credited you, I really appreciate it.
