I don't have enough patience to tab it perfectly, but all the notes are correct. Just 
to the song and you'll know when to use each riff.

Ok?

So, lets get started:
I think Angus uses a slide to play this song, but a might be wrong...

x/y -> slide from x to y
~ -> hold note for a bit
* -> mute strings

ANGUS:
Intro
e|-------3-------1-------0------1--0--1--0--|
B|-----3-------3-------3------3--3--3--3----|
G|---0-------0-------0------0--0--0--0------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|


Basic Riff
e|--------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
G|--0-3-0-3-0-3-0-3/5~--3-0-3/0~--|--3/2-0-3/2-0-3/2-3/5~--3-0-3*3*3-0~--|
D|--0-3-0-3-0-3-0-3/5~--3-0-3/0~--|--3/2-0-3/2-0-3/2-3/5~--3-0-3*3*3-0~--|
A|--------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------------|

Chorus Riff
e|------------------|--------------------|
B|------------------|--------------------|
G|---10/5~--3/12~---|---10/5~--15*-12~---|
D|---10/5~--3/12~---|---10/5~--15*-12~---|
A|------------------|--------------------|
E|------------------|--------------------|

MALCOLM

Intro
e|--3------------|
B|--3------------|
G|--0--5--3--0---|
D|--0--5--3--0---|
A|-----3--1--x---|
E|-----------3---|

Everything else (just change a bit the rhythm for the last note some times)
e|---------------|
B|---------------|
G|--5--5--3--0---|
D|--3--5--3--0---|
A|-----3--1--x---|
E|-----------3---|


This is it...

Yep, its simple.

There are some notes Angus plays that area bit hard to listen clearly. But nothing 
hard to tab. I'm just lazy.

Good job. Quick too. Before the album;)
Nice work on main riff. Fancy doing the title track, Black Ice?
