The pre-chorus guitar licks aren't 100% but sound fairly close, the rest of the song is 
pretty solid, some parts done by ear, others

from watching the official vid, and others from various other tabs, so they should get 
most of the credit, I just pieced what I feel

is most accurate together.

12121212 on F again.
p.m.              . . .. . ..  . .. ... ..

Repeat verse again, missing out pre-chorus parts and doing a scrape & 8 barchord again,
then play the first bar of 'chorus2', and the whole of 'chorus'; and the solo starts on 
the 8 barchord
(I'm crap at terminology, but you should get what I mean).

solo:

 C|---------------------15--17--13--15--17--13--15--17-|
 G|-----------------------15--15--15--15--15--15--15---|
D#|-12b~---12p10-12b~----------------------------------|
A#|----------------------------------------------------|
 F|----------------------------------------------------|
A#|----------------------------------------------------| you should be able to get the 
bends right from listening

 C|-17h18-17-15-15/20b~---20b~-15--17--13--15--17--13--15--17-|
 G|------------------------------15--15--15--15--15--15--15---|
D#|-----------------------------------------------------------|
A#|-----------------------------------------------------------|
 F|-----------------------------------------------------------|
A#|-----------------------------------------------------------| bend the absolute crap 
out of that last 20!

cheers man! Like I said though, a lot of credit goes to some of the people that covered this before I tabbed it, I just pieced what I thought sounded most accurate with what I'd deciphered and whacked it into this tab!
