the trick is at the beginning you let the notes ring out but while you are holding them
use a wah wah pedal and puch down and release qickly to give it that sound

G-------4--------------3----------------------------------------------------|

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.
