It's really hard to hear exactly how he bends in the beginning but this is
the best i got.
Part 1, Really fast:                        . Hold this a fraction longer
e|----------------------5-----------5--------------------------|
B|-555--------5---5-5-----5---5-5------------------5-----------|
G|-7b9-7b9----7b9---7b9---7b9---7b9---9r7p5-7--5---5---5-7p5---|
D|-----------------------------------------------7-------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------7---------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------|

D|-------------------------5h7------------------7\-|
A|-------3p0h3-5p3h5-7p5h7-------------------------|
E|-5p3h5-------------------------------------------|

Part 3, Super cool muted riff:
   x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x                        
e|-----5-8-5---5-----8-5---5-----5------------------------|

Remember when America...

Then in the end of the first, second and last chorus play the unmuted end of
part 3. The riff also introduces the second solo ending on the D (7th fret g
string), and continues:

e|-------------7-7-------7-7----7------------|
B|-----(3)/10------10-10-----10---10---10/12-|
G|-5-7---------------------------------------| I can't make out
D|-------------------------------------------| the third tone but i think
A|-------------------------------------------| he's just sliding into
E|-------------------------------------------| the high A.

   .  .  .   .   .   .  .   .     The . are beats
e|------------------------------| In notes this would be:
B|-8--8--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--8-8-8-| 4 4 8888, 8884 888
G|------------------------------|
D|------------------------------|
A|------------------------------|
E|------------------------------|

   .   .   .   .   .  .   .   .     
e|--------------------------------|
B|-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-| 88888884,8888888
G|--------------------------------| The quarter note leaks over into the
D|--------------------------------| second measure.
A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|

                                  . this bend is slightly shorter
e|---------8--5----------------------------------|
B|------8------------5--8------10-----8----5---5-|
G|-5/9------------7b-------7h9----7b8--7b9^^^9---| ^ = Hold the bend
D|-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

e|-----------------------------|
B|-5-8-5-8-5-------------------|
G|-----------8-7-5-7b9 hold----|
D|-----------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|

end, play all notes x4
e|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|-14-12-10-9-9-7-5-4-2---|
D|------------------------|
A|-12-10-8--7-7-5-3-2-0---|
