INTRO

B Power Chords in the background
e|----
B|----
G|----
D|-9~-
A|-9~- x8
E|-7~-

This is played on top of the repeated B power chords
Fade into the first note
e|----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------12-----------------------12~h14p12-10~----------|
G|-------------14------------13~h14p13-11~------------------------|
D|-9~-11~-/14~------13h14p13-----------------------------13h14p13-|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|

VERSE 1

Continue the above ^^ into the verse 1 as shown below:
e|-----------------------------------------|
B|--------/10~-12~---------/10~\-----------|
G|-11~-9~----------/11~-9~-----------------|
D|-------------------------------11b12r11~-|
A|-----------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

During Verse 1, this is the guitar part, on what may be a 12-string
It is played rather fast with short pauses in between each repetition
e|-------|
B|-----0-|
G|---2---| x64
D|-2-----|
A|-------|
E|-------|

Near the end of the verse, the lead comes back, fading in
On the last note, fade the volume or distortion higher
e|-------------------------------|
B|--------10~-12~--------10~-12~-|
G|-11~-9~---------11~-9~---------|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|

CHORUS 1

Only 1 guitar to play on this one, so it's pretty self explanatory
e|--------------------     e|-------------|
B|--------------------     B|-------------|
G|--------------------     G|-------------|
D|-9~9-------7-9-9-7~-     D|-9~9-----2~~-|
A|-9~9-------7-------- x7  A|-9~9-----2~~-|
E|-7~7-3b4.5-5--------     E|-7~7-2b3-0~~-|

VERSE 2

A similar lead to Verse 1 is played, with a minor addition to the beginning
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------/10~-12~---------/10~\----------|
G|----------11~-9~----------/11~-9~----------------|
D|-11b12r11------------------------------11b12r11~-|
A|-------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------|

Again, on guitar throughout the verse:
e|-------|
B|-----0-|
G|---2---| x64
D|-2-----|
A|-------|
E|-------|

And finally, this part fades in, then the distortion rises at the end
e|-------------------------------|
B|--------10~-12~--------10~-12~-|
G|-11~-9~---------11~-9~---------|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|

CHORUS 2, GUITAR SOLO, and CHORUS 3 (OUTRO)

These few parts are bundled together, but it is rather simple.
The main chorus riff is repeated until the outro which fades out:
e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|--------------------|
D|-9~9-------7-9-9-7~-|
A|-9~9-------7--------|
E|-7~7-3b4.5-5--------|

After 7 repetitions, the guitar solo begins, with the chorus riff still going:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-/11~-----------------/11~---------------------------------13b14-11~-|
D|------14--------14---------14h16p14-13-14~---------------------------|
A|---------12~-12----12----------------------/14-12h13-16-14-----------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------14-14b14.5-14~-----14----ph16----ph18b19----------ph19b20----|
D|-14h16----------------/16----16------16---------16-16-16---------16-|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------|
G|-ph19b21r19p16------ph16~-ph14-ph16-19b21r19-16-|
D|---------------ph19-----------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------|

8 cycles
e|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-19p16h19p16h19p16h19p16h19p16h19p16h19p16h19p16-
D|-------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------|

For the final 6 cycles, push the vibrato bar down, as can be heard in the song
When you reach the bends, release the vibrato
e|-------------------------------------15b17-15b17r15-14-14~-|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-19p16h19p16h19p16h19p16h19p16h19p16-----------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|

That is all, now just repeat the chorus riff like explained earlier until the end.
Thank you!
