This is where the drum solo comes in. After the solo play this:

Ending, Part 1:
e: --------------------------------------------------------- |
B: --------------------------------------------------------- |
G: --------------------------------------------------------- |
D: -----3-----------5-----6------------3-----1------------8- |
A: ---3-----------1-----1------------3-------1----------8--- |
E: -1-----------1-----1------------1---------1--------6----- |
             
After Ending, Part 1 is played two times, a keyboard part starts
playing in the background.  You can play that part on the guitar
like this:

Ending, Part 2:
e: -16--15-----8-10-11--18--16--15---13----11-- |
B: -13--13-----5--7--8--15--13--13---10-----8-- |
G: -------------------------------------------- |
D: -------------------------------------------- |
A: -------------------------------------------- |
E: -------------------------------------------- |

Play this and Part 1 together a few times, and then play just Part 2 
twice.

That's it!

On the chorus, I think that F-G#-D# instead of F#-A-E.
