Notes - The song is supposed to use barre chords, but when using a hefty bit of
distortion it can sound a little fuzzy (couldn't think of any other word??). So it
sounds just as good with powerchords, or just make the barre chord shape and strum
the first 3 strings (which is pointless, but what I end up doing). Oh, and this is
played with two guitars. Although I've only covered one. I think the second guitar
pretty much does what the 1st one does, except it covers the solo and there's a
slight variation at the end.

I'm not too sure about the next bit, but the drums and bass play a big part in the rhythm of this part.

This repeats 4 times, then the solo comes in over the top of it. Play this a total of 12 
(8 while the solo is going on).

Wrong, I know, but it's a simple way to play it and it sounds sorta right.

The last bit is played by another guitar, over the top of the main bit (I think).

Pretty much the same, but go back to the B string after you hit 10/12 on E
Also the last part.
