There are some slight changes in in timings and repetition's but you can get the hang of it.

You can work out the order.

To play along with the album version put your capo on the fourth fret instead!

Also, I think more bass notes are played throughout the main riff and there's also an extra note he hits on the fourth bar which I think is an F#.
