Nice and easy to read. I have a few corrections though.

The Gs in the end of the main riff are an octave higher, so it should be like this:

|--------------|
|------5-------|
|-3---------3--|
|--------------|

|--------------|------------------|
|------5-------|-----5-(5)-----5--|
|-3---------3--|-(3)--------3-----|
|--------------|------------------|

Next, the second ending of the verse riff sounds more like this:

|---------------|-----------------|
|---------------|-----------------|
|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2---------|
|---------------|---------2--2--2-|

The riff that repeats 4 times in the bridge is right for the first time. The second time, however, there's a different ending, so it should look like this:

|----------------|-------------|----------------|----------------------|
|----------------|-------------|----------------|----------------------|
|----------------|-------------|----------------|----------------------|
|-1-1---1----1-1-|---1---------|-1-1---1----1-1-|---1--1/-11-11-11-11\-|

The third and fourth time it goes simply like this:

|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|

Also, the riff that follows that part is played twice, which isn't marked on the tab.

Other than that, it's a great tab.

Oops, looks like I made a mistake as well. The 11s should of course be 13s like so:

|----------------|-------------|----------------|----------------------|
|----------------|-------------|----------------|----------------------|
|----------------|-------------|----------------|----------------------|
|-1-1---1----1-1-|---1---------|-1-1---1----1-1-|---1--1/-13-13-13-13\-|

I also noticed that there are some other riffs that don't say how many times they are played but that's no issue.
