play the above three times, then play this:

|-----------------------------------------3---1---0---0---0---0--|

and the last note is:
|---|
|---|
|-0-|
|---|
as the guitar goes back into the riff.

riff part 3 times, 7/8 part four, riff four, 7/8 four. the end.
all through these heavy sections he skips certain notes (rests) for different effects. There doesnOt seem to be any sort of pattern, so I didnOt bother to figure it out.

If you find any mistakes ... good for you!
