Love Bites (So Do I)
Drop D tuning (DADgbe)

I like to play a lot of the open D notes with
the open A string to make it sound a little heavier.

p = pull off
h = hammer on
b = bend
br = slowly release or let down the note you are bending
/s/ = slide to
v = vibrato

while bending fret 20 (the note G) on the b string:
(2:24)

b|-18-20-------------20-18--------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|

back to the chorus

At the very end there is some kind of variation on the break at 1:44
It is similar to this:
(2:59)
e|--------------------------------------------------|
b|--------------------------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|7-0-5-0-7-0-5-0-888-775-0-------------------------|
D|7-0-5-0-7-0-5-0-888-775-0-------------------------|

Also note at spots like (0:40) and (1:21) it sounds like the guitarist is just pulling 
off these notes:
e|--------------------------------------------------|
b|--------------------------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
D|5p3p0---------------------------------------------|

And that ends the song. Its a fun song to play and was good practice to learn by ear. 
Hope it helps. Edited 10/6/2013
