Bridge 2 - same as the distortion part of the intro

Now, the tab legend:
/ - slide up     h - hammer on     ~ - vibrato
\ - slide down   : - repeat bars   PM - palm mute

This is my first major attempt at tabbing something.  I hope this helps some people
out, because I had one hell of a time with this song.  Please send me every comment
you can think of, I like some good criticism.
