The third time around is when the F power chord comes in
It's the last chord on the chords used above. It's played
over the rhythm part with crazy effects and meant to let ring.

This continues for the rest of the song...its not just these chords
though..the other riffs are playing as well..use some palm muting
and hit only the top 2-3 strings as well to give that heavy sound.
The whole song is really just a few riffs but it sounds great when
they're all played together live. 

If you got any questions, lemme know...emails at the top
Cheers
