This song is very layered and hard for me to get every detail, but here's most of it. :)

Sometimes the intro is played by hammering 18h20 on the B, so mess around w/those notes

does anyone knows how to do the intro for the other guitar?
do they use a volume pedal with delay for it?

for the big climactic part, I always do this:

-17-------17-------17----17-------18----------
----17-17----17-17----17----17-17----17-17-17-

same pattern for
-15-------18- --13-------- with no added notes
---16-16----- and -----16-16--

First of all, I applaud you for making an effort to tab this one. It's definitely not easy to pick out what is going on a lot of the time. This is an ok job. It's definitely brief and some of it is way off. For example, Michael's part at 4:12 should be:


|-----------------------|--------------------|
|-------------8---------|-----------1--------|
|----------------9------|--------------2-----|
|---------10--------10--|--------3--------3--|
|-----10----------------|-----3--------------|
|--8--------------------|--1-----------------|

|------------------|------------------|-------------------|
|----------3-------|----------5-------|--------------3----|
|-------------4----|-------------5----|-----------4-----4-|
|-------5--------5-|-------7--------7-|--------5----------|
|----5-------------|----7-------------|-----5-------------|
|-3----------------|-5----------------|--3----------------|


(listen to the recording to hear how each part is repeated).

That's just one correction. I've been wanting to sit down and go through this song for awhile now, but haven't got it in me to do so. It would probably take me the better part of a year to tab everything out. So again, kudos to you for taking the time to tab it yourself. Perhaps one day someone will sit down and tab a complete version. Cheers!
