This is a great tab, thank you. Try this out and see what you make of it.

Verse Lead:
e-------10--------9-|------7-------5-
B----10----10-------|---10---9-------
G-11----------------|-9--------------
D-------------------|----------------
A-------------------|----------------
E-------------------|----------------

And the final part added in the last part of the song is one note struck repeatedly. It has the qualities of a piano key hit. It can be somewhat recreated by playing a harmonic on the high e-string, high on the neck. With a good distortion, even playing the high e on the 12th fret works out pretty well.

I don't know if it matters or not, but when I saw them play this song live, Claudio played the solo. Also, I play the solo a little differently (with a few more bends to accentuate some of the notes), but you certainly have all the right notes in place. Great tab!
