A few corrections:

The latter half of the Verse 1 riff is like this:

G|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--0-2-3-5-0-0-5---0-3-5-6-0-0-6---5-3-5-0000006---5-3-5-0000006---5-3-|

And the final riff is:

E|--0-2-3-5-0-0-5---0-3-5-6-0-0-6---5-3-5-3000006---5-3-5-3000006---5-3-|
