Two guitar parts technically, but this is how I play it acoustic... it works

Electric is basically the same, except solo and outro riff - see bottom for those.

Also, since most of this song is just picking chords, I think it might make it easier if 
knew the chords you're picking, so I'll put them here and above whatever you're playing:

G:  320033
D:  --0323
Am: -02210
E7: 022---
C:  -32010

Legend:
~ = let ring
h = hammer on
p = pull off

Like most of the songs I tab out, this is far easier than the tab makes it look... enjoy

I tried tabbing out the rest of the solo (the timing isn't correct, and I'm not sure about the finger positions) The notes in the brackets are very hard to hear


E|----------------------------|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|-----8-----7--5--/--3-------|
G|--------------------5--4----|----------------------------|
D|-----------2--0-------------|--5-------------------------|
A|-----2----------------------|----------------------------|
E|--3-------------------------|----------------------------|

The solo at the end is easier this way:

Hold the high E bend for a while and then come back in by bending it again.
E-------------10b12...10b12----------10-------
B-10-12-10------------------12-10-12----12-10- x3 (the first 12 only once)

E-------15-14-10-
B-10-12---------- ... and then like 4 more of the riff above.

The rest is just improvised in that area so I didn't tab that out because it wasn't meant to be the same every time. It's not hard to figure out if you're no creative enough to make something up.
