verse 1 - lead guitar

this is played only once at the start of the verse

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-12-12-12-12-12------12-12-12-12-12----9--12-12-12-12-12-----10p9-7-5------|

A|-------------------10------------------------------------10----------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

chorus- this is the part where other tabs ont sound right to me, this seems closer in my opinion

rhythm guitar

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----5-4------5-4----------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------4-5------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-0-0------0-0--------------------------------------------------------------|

thats all the rhythm guitar plays in the chorus, doesnt sound right by itself, but when 
together with the lead it sounds perfect!

lead-chorus

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----5-4-----5-4---------5-4-----5-4---------------------------------------|
D|-2-2-----2-2-----4-5------------------4-5----------------------------------|
A|---------------------0-0-----0-0-------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

that is played twice, then

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----7-4-----7-4---------7-4-----7-4---------------------------------------|
D|-2-2-----2-2-----4-5------------------4-5----------------------------------|
A|---------------------0-0-----0-0-------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

as was written above, the rhythm guitar plays the same for both verses.
