Kinda surprised this has not been tabbed yet.  This is the first tab I've
ever posted here.  It may be shaky at spots but I think it sounds pretty
good.  Both guitars use some distortion, the lead more than rhythm.  You
could easily get by just using some overdrive on your amp. 

I've included two different phrasings for several of the lead sections.
Both are the same but one is based more closely around a standard scale;
the other is probably a little thinner and will sound better on certain
equipment.  Pick whatever one better fits your style, sound, hands, etc.

Rhythm plays main progression throughout, except during bridge and breakdown.
The strum pattern is subtly tricky if you listen closely to the song.  It's 
difficult to tab out, but here it is.  Focus mainly on your lower three or 
four strings when playing rhythm.  E and B strings are only faintly heard at 
times.
