(then go on to Figure 9, only that the tail end of each section is strummed just like 
rest of the chorus, so there are no stops whatsoever. Whole chorus will be strummed)

(After solo section, move on to Figure 5, then onto Figure 10, then onto Figure 11, then 
Figure 6, only repeating that main riff 3 times. Then go onto Figure 12)

I---------------------------------------------10~-I--| x2

(the tail end of the riff is some kind of melody that's based on the E pentatonic)

Then go on to riff Figure 10, then Figure 5 with the whole chorus being strum. Then back 
to Figure 5

guitarfreakjj is right about the intro. Other than that, this tab rules. My wrist hurts from playing this song.

I feel the verse riff is a little easier this way, but it's the same as yours really:
