hey it's pretty good but right before the solo the 9 on the g string is actually on the B string. During the prechorus, the first 9 you hit on teh G string he also hits the 9 on the B string as well sometimes. after that, he just plays it how u ahve it written. In addition, there is only 1 guitar in the song so it's not like there's a rhythm...it's just layered. In the beginning, he's strumming an E power chord on the A string (7th fret).

here's my interpretation of the solo:
E :12-12-12-12---------------------|----------------------------------------------|
B :12-12-12-12----------9-/10-10-10|10-10-10-10-10-10-/-9--7-10-10-10-10-12-12-9-9|
