Tabbed by punkforlife93
Tuning Drop D

(Note: I didn’t want to tab both guitars, but the other one is fairly easy to figure 
I just tabbed what I assumed was the lead. Enjoy!)

(This part is tricky, because of the transition to tapping.  What I prefer
to do is bar the 10 with my left index finger, hammer on with my left ring finger, and
off with my right middle finger, while holding the pick like normal, so I can hit the 12
at the end relatively easily.  But it’s a matter of personal preference.)

Great tab dude.
two things. one, the other guitar plays this during the intro (or at least this is how i play it):

E|----------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------|
G|---7-7-xxx-777-xxx--5--5-xxx--777-xxx---| PLAY
D|---7-7-xxx-888-xxx--5--5-xxx--777-xxx---| 4X
A|---5-5-xxx-555-xxx--3--3-xxx--555-xxx---|
D|----------------------------------------|

and then the part you have marked as the "chorus" I think the 10s on the high e are actually natural harmonics on the d string, 5th fret. also in that line, instead of pm the open D chords, I just strike dead notes in between the first open D chord and the F chord.
But like i said, that's how I play it. I think it's a bit easier.
But other than that this tab seems 100% correct to me.

Correct le mundo, hxcemoboi. That's how I play the second guitar in the intro too, just the other one seemed like lead, and I didn't want to have to tab all of the other guitar's parts, so I didn't tab any.

I tried out your harmonic idea, I think that's right. I don't do the dead notes bit, but whatever is easier is cool beans, do work dude.
