Tabbed by: Tyler J

Tuning: Standard

For the verse, the guitar just strikes an E chord on occasion.

E--0--
B--0--
G--1--
D--2--
A--2--
E--0--

for the first solo:

E-----------------------------|
B--12--15-12--12--12--12--15--| etc, just keep playing
G--14b----14b-14b-14b-14b-----| variations on that
D-----------------------------|
A-----------------------------|
E-----------------------------|

for the second solo:

E-------------------------------|
B------15-----15-----15-----15--|
G--14b----14b----14b----14b-----| etc
D-------------------------------|
A-------------------------------|
E-------------------------------|

The bass plays A for the chorus (?) part after the 2nd solo,
there's a very buried clean guitar strumming A, I think.

for the third solo:

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------bend these notes slightly-------|
A--12b~~~~~feedback--12r-10-12br-10--------10-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12b~~~--|
E-----------------------------------12~~~-------------------------------------|

for the fourth solo:

E------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------15~~~----------------------------------15-----15-15--------------------|
G--14b---------14b-14b-14b-14b-14b-14b-14b-etc----14b-------12-14-12-14-12-12--|
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E---------------------------------12-----12-----12-12-12-12-12-12-random skronk-|
B------15----------------------------15b----15b-15b---15b---15b-----------------|
G--14b----12-14-14-14-12-12-14b-------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

for the chorus after that solo, come in towards the end playing this:

E------|
B--5---|
G--7b-- and keep bending/picking the D note..
D------|      and astray from there on 5th/7th frets
A------|
E------|

the fifth solo is basically a feedback solo, dissolving into a guitarless break.

for the sixth solo, just repeat the basic elements of previous solos (haha)
and proceed to meltdown.
