I have not been able to find a version of this song that sounded decent.  I am 95% 
positive that this tab is correct.  The times written above the actual tab parts 
were taken from another tab of this song found on this site.  I did not check to 
see if the timing was correct.  If the times are wrong, let me know and I will 
change them accordingly.  Comment and/or rate if it suits you.

At this point of the song, I noted something different about the main riff.  At 
the end of the riff, instead of strumming all of the strings open two times, they 
are strummed three times.  It was a subtle change.  Unless you were listening for 
it, you would never realize the slight difference. If you like, you can continue 
to strum the open strings three times, but because I am trying to tab this song as 
accurately as possible, I tabbed out the three strums.
