Really good tab...
A couple of corrections though on the riff. I guess it sounds better when played like this :

E|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------|
A|--0-0-2-3--2-0------3-5--/7-5-3-----|
E|---------------3--3-----------------|

And it changes slighty every other time or so :

E|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------|
A|--0-0-2-3--2-0------3-5---3-0-------|
E|---------------3--3-----------3-----|

And there's a couple like these on the last verse :

E|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------5-7-----|
A|--0-0-2-3--2-0------3-5--/7---------|
E|---------------3--3-----------------|

I agree. That is definately how it goes. I also think that the chorus changes to. The second time around instead of starting at the F bar chord and working up to the A, it starts at the A and works down to the F. Listen to the song and see if you agree.

I reckon sinuso has it right with the riff, thats how I figured it out as well. But your tab really helped me with the solo and chords for the chorus, good work mate, keep it up.
