This is my take on the song. I left it as open as i could for interpretation. Feel free
to through in your own stylistic what-not. Anyway, standard tuning, let's get to it.

-Intro (it sounds like there's a cello in there too, you 
can approximate that by playing the octave higher, as well): 

Guitar 2 (distortion & reverb):
E|-0-1--8--7-9--5-|-0-1--8--7-|-5--9--12-13--8--7-|-9--5--0-1--8--7--|

e|-0~---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-0~---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-6~---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-7~---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-0~---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

High-pitched riff that starts playing during Intro
(This gets repeated in the verse as well):
e|-12-10-9-10-9--12-10-9-10-9--12-10-9-10-| x2


-Verse:

Guitar 1 - rhythm guitar (pro co rat distortion, probably)

-Repeat Intro (trem guitar comes in here):

Tremolo part (REVERB & ECHO):
e|-5tr~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|


-Verse (trem guitar part continues)

e|-5tr~~4tr~~|-2tr~~4tr~~|-1tr~~|------|------------------|
B|-----------|-----------|------|-3tr~~|-6tr~5tr~3tr~2tr~~|

e|------------------|-5tr~~4tr~~~~~~~~|-2tr~~4tr~~|-1tr~~~|

e|-8tr~~7tr~~|-5tr~~|------------------|------------------|
B|-----------|------|-6tr~5tr~3tr~2tr~~|-6tr~5tr~3tr~2tr~~|


-Chorus


-Verse Again with Tremolo lead-in. Solo guitar plays similar 
melody to trem part, without trem & the addition of bends and 
double-stops, etc (i.e. a guitar solo)....oh, & (no rhythm guitar)


-Chorus (rhythm guitar returns) x2


-Then comes the 'BREAKDOWN/BREAKOUT' part. There is a 
tremolo guitar part. however, it's mostly FX, just 
improvise (and make it nice and epic while you're at it)

(Optional Rhythm Guitar Part):
e|-0-000-00-00-0-0-|-0-000-00-00-0-0-|
B|-2-222-22-22-2-2-|-0-000-22-22-2-2-|
G|-2-222-22-22-2-2-|-2-222-22-22-2-2-|
D|-2-222-22-22-2-2-|-2-222-22-22-2-2-|
A|-0-000-00-00-0-0-|-0-000-00-00-0-0-|
E|-----------------|-----------------|

*Bring in the intro riff at the end

*AND...finish with!:

e|-0~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
B|-0~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
G|-6~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
D|-7~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
A|-0~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

perhaps i exaggerated the hold time, but in any case, that's the song. cheers.
