Bridging back into the verse at 1:37

G#|-0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0--0-0----------|
C#|-0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0--0-0----------|

From here on out, the entire song structure repeats itself.

A new riff shows up at 3:12. Palm mute all the notes marked with a *.

Play this part 3 times         On the fourth time, listen for the "YEAH" and play:

D#|-------------------------|----------------------|
A#|-------------------------|----------------------|
F#|-------------------------|----------------------|
C#|-------------------------|----------------------|
G#|-----5--5-3---5-3--5-3---|-----5--5-3-----------|
C#|-0-0-------3-----3----3--|-0-0-------3---15~~~--|
    * *                       * *

Same riff at 3:22, different drum arrangement:

Play this part 3 times         On the fourth time, lock in and play the chromatic pattern:

D#|-------------------------|---------------------------|
A#|-------------------------|---------------------------|
F#|-------------------------|---------------------------|
C#|-------------------------|---------------------------|
G#|-----5--5-3---5-3--5-3---|-----5--5-3----------------|
C#|-0-0-------3-----3----3--|-0-0-------3~--7-6-5-4-3-2-|
    * *                       * *           * * * * * *

The guitar solo comes up at 3:33. Here's what the rhythm guitar plays:

Play this part two times.     Make sure to let the notes followed by a ~ ring.
D#|-------------------------|---------------------------------|
A#|-------------------------|---------------------------------|
F#|-------------------------|---------------------------------|
C#|-------------------------|------------3~~------------------|
G#|-----5--5-3---5-3--5-3---|-----5--5-3----------5--5-3------|
C#|-0-0-------3-----3----3--|-0-0-------------0-0--------3~~--|
    * *                       * *           

At 3:55, end the solo section with:

D#|---------------------------------|
A#|---------------------------------|
F#|---------------------------------|
C#|------------3~~------------------|
G#|-----5--5-3----------5--5-3------|
C#|-0-0-------------0-0--------3~~--|

Starting at 4:00, there's a lot of intentional noise and big fat C# chords. The song will 
finally return to the post-chorus section and end with the syncopated C# groove as if it
were bridging back into the verse.
