Awesome tab, thanks. I had this thing basically tabbed out myself but I couldn't get a few of the riff parts. Glad to finally know how to play it completely.

One minor correction, the ending chord has a typo. Should be the same chord as in the verse:

Dmaj7

e|------5-------|
B|------7-------|
G|------6-------|
D|------7-------|
A|------0-------|
D|------0-------|
