this is after the solo do the wah wah pedal thing i explained earlier in the tab for
the chords a couple time

e|-----3----------3----------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----3----------3----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----4----------3----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----5----------3----------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----5----------3----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----3----------3----------------------------------------------------------|

after hitting those chords with the wah wah a couple of times you do this pattern for
them  (dont let any of these chords ring out)

e|-----3-----3-3-3--3----3-3-3--3-----3-3-3--3-----3-3-3--|  play this 
B|-----3-----3-3-3--3----3-3-3--3-----3-3-3--3-----3-3-3--|  progression
G|-----4-----4-4-4--4----4-4-4--3-----3-3-3--3-----3-3-3--|  twice
D|-----5-----5-5-5--5----5-5-4--3-----3-3-3--3-----3-3-3--|
A|-----5-----5-5-5--5----5-5-4--3-----3-3-3--3-----3-3-3--|
E|-----3-----3-3-3--3----3-3-3--3-----3-3-3--3-----3-3-3--|

 heres the very end of the song
 (dont let any of these chords ring out
e|----3-----3-3-3--3---------------------------------------------------------|
B|----3-----3-3-3--3---------------------------------------------------------|
G|----4-----4-4-4--4---------------------------------------------------------|
D|----5-----5-5-5--5---------------------------------------------------------|
A|----5-----5-5-5--5---------------------------------------------------------|
E|----3-----3-3-3--3---------------------------------------------------------|

Good tab,but there arent 6-strings chords in it.
It should been played like this
E-------|
B-------|
G----3--|
D-5--3--|
A-5-----|
E-3-----|
But the main riffs are okay.Also the solo.
