So yeah, this was mostly pieced together from the guitar tab and my terrible ear. 

If you have corrections, PM me or comment or something. Thanks!

Solid tab, but one of th notes on the main riff is off. It sounds better like this:

F|------------------------------------------------------------|
c|----9~-----9-8--8-----------------9~-----9-8--8--------7-8--|
G|------------------10--10-9-7--------------------10--10------|
D|0~-----0-0~-------------------0~-----0-0~-------------------|
