And I can NOT for the life of me figure out that little widdly ending bit.
That's all the main rhythm bits and riffy things anyway.
I would've tabbed out the solo but I don't think it's all that accurate.
The song's more or less all there I think.

I thought this particular song was in D standard? Although Sabbath's "classic" tuning is C#...

This is a decent-enough transcription of the song to standard tuning. But the guy who posted this should have mentioned the tuning. He didn't, and I can only conclude it's because he's a ****ing idiot.
