I just noticed that i have made a mistake on the bridge, the riff is more like this:

Eb|------------------------00000000-|
Bb|-00000000000000-0000000-00000000-|
Gb|-44444444444444/6666666-66666666-|
Db|-44444444444444/6666666-77777777-|
Ab|-22222222222222/4444444-00000000-|
Eb|---------------------------------|

you gotta play this riff 3 times before you get to the riff that goes like this:

Eb|-----------------|
Bb|-----------------|
Gb|-----------------|
Db|-444444/99999999-|
Ab|-444444/99999999-|
Eb|-222222/77777777-|
