This is my interpretation of Alexi's guitar part
I would say this is 95% correct what I would say is incorrect is the number of chords
strummed in the Chorus and the Breakdown section but the notes are correct.
Make sure you read the text in throughout this tab for a better explanation for playing 
this song.
Note there is no Palm Muting marks because I don't think you need them (just listen to
the song and you should be able to figure it out).

the song for timing and you will work it out)

Depress Whammy Bar but don't pick, pull off both G,B (F,A) strings, and catch the
natural harmonic on both strings above the 7th fret on the way up and raise the bar slowly,
then quickly up towards the end of bar travel and then relax tension and do quick up and 
down tremolo movements to complete.
(Basically a Dive Bomb technique, listen to the song and you'll figure it out)

Or...
You can do it this way from either 15 or 17 on the G,B (F,A) string and doing the same
technique with the whammy bar as above.

Ok here are the chromatic scale notes or whatever he uses to play this part
(Not the solo, it's only the notes!)

||------------------------14-13-12-11------------------------|
||------------------------------------15-14-13-12------------|
||-----------------------------------------------16-15-14-13-|
||-----------------------------------------------------------|

And here is how he plays it with tapping, note that it is all tapping, hammer on's, and
pull off's(no picking in this part).

||---------Start picking from here-^----------------------------------|
And that's one way and the easiest way to play the solo.  Alexi even says that every
time he plays it, it's going to be different; like he will play it like it is above but
when he gets to the G/F string he will go back to the B/A string and then go all the way 
to the end.  Just muck around with the notes in the scale but make sure you only Tap, hammer
on, and pull off.
