  At 1:11, a second guitar comes and plays the

     At 2:33 either Guitar 1 plays this riff
     or its a third guitar that comes in, Im
                   not sure:

                VERSE RIFF  2:33
       Guitar is distorted, with some reverb.
D -----7-7-7--10-7-5--x3----5h7p5h7-----------------|
A --------------------------------------------------|
F --------------------------------------------------|
C --------------------------------------------------|
G --------------------------------------------------|
D --------------------------------------------------|

      Play those riffs until the chorus:
                CHORUS   2:45
D -----------------------------------------------------|
A -----3~-----5~-----1~-----0~-------------------------|
F ----x------x------x------x---------------------------|  x2
C ---3~-----5~-----1~-----0~---------------------------|

D -----------------------------------------------------|

                 CHORUS   2:58

                CHORUS   3:04

F -----------------------x----x----------------------|
G -----3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5---1----0----------------------|
C ---------------------------------------------------|
D ---------------------------------------------------|

    Then theres a pick scrape part at 3:11,  Im
                sure of the chord.

    Then comes the final  part at 3:24:
    FINAL CHORUS  3:24 (Play till end)
D ---------------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------------|
F ------------------------------7-7-7----------------|
C -----7-7----7-7-7----7-7-7----x-x-x----------------|
G -----x-x----x-x-x----x-x-x----5-5-5----------------|
D -----5-5----5-5-5----5-5-5-------------------------|
(You can play 10x12 chords instead of the x5x7 chords.)

    Guitar 2 plays this over guitar #1's Chorus
    For this part there is no picking, just
         hammering on and off fret 5.
          FINAL CHORUS RIFF   3:48
D ---h5p0-h5po-h5p0-h5p0-h5p0-h5p0-h5p0-h5p0--------|
A --------------------------------------------------|
F --------------------------------------------------|
C --------------------------------------------------|
G --------------------------------------------------|
D --------------------------------------------------|

      Just keep playing those two riffs until
                  the song ends.
                   END ON: 4:13
D --------------------------------------------------|
A --------------------------------------------------|
F --------------------------------------------------|
C ------7-7-----------------------------------------|
G ------x-x-----------------------------------------|
D ------5-5-----------------------------------------|
