2nd Verse
Guitar 1 plays Riff 1b (see at the top of the page)


Guitar 2 (joins in when guitar 1 plays riff 1b for the 2nd time)

	|------0--------------------------------------------------|
	|---0h2----6---0h2-0----2---2-----------------------------|
	|-------------------1--4----------------------------------|
	|-----------------------------4---2-----------------------|
	|---------------------------------------------------------|
	|---------------------------------------------------------|

|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--5----5---/7----9----5----5-------------5-------------------------|
|--6----6---/8----9----6----6----6-----4-----4----------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|


|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--5----5---/7----9----5----5--------7---5--------------------------|
|--6----6---/8----9----6----6----6----------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

The last chorus is a bit different from the first, one guitar plays the same riff as in 
first chorus, guitar 2 plays some chords I won't find out.
The 2nd time guitar 1 plays Riff 1b (!) and guitar 2 Riff 3 (the one after the 1st 
song ends with riff 1.

On the first riff, isn't that 1 supposed to be on the D string?

See, you have it like this:
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------1----------------------------------------------| play 2x
|--2-----2-----4----------------------------------------------------|
|--4----------------------4-----4-------/7----7---------------------|
|-----0-----0-----0-----0—2---2---2---2/5-------5-------------------|

But i thought it went like this:
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------| play 2x
|--2-----2-----4------1----------------------------------------------|
|--4----------------------4-----4-------/7----7---------------------|
|-----0-----0-----0-----0—2---2---2---2/5-------5-------------------|

Correct me if I'm wrong...
