This tab is 100% correct, taken from several live videos, this is exactly what he plays. 
It's very tricky at first, but with practice it sounds great.
Any questions E-mail me @ Tmx88@aol.com

Legend:  

h- hammer on,
p - pull off
pm - palm mute

*Distortion for this song = Boss MT-2 and ME-50 users(mt-2 setting), Drive 3/4,
bass 1/2, tone 1/2. 
That should give you the closest sound.

This is an okay tab, but some parts are wrong. I'll just point some of them out to you.

In the heavy part right after the intro, aka the chorus riff, right after the second set of D5's, it should head straight into three G5's, without another D5. And I also see in the palm muted riff, You have us playing a proggression of A5 G5 F5 D5 in the first part, when realy it should just be all D5's, then it moves on to what you have written. And also in the part where maynard is screaming a guitar doubles his notes by playing on the 4th string (D): 12 12 10 10 15 15 12 12 twice.

Yeah, just three things, but really god job taing the time to tab this.
