I'm working on the solo as we speak, i'll have it sometime 
this weekend probably.  The chorus is as close as i can get 
it for now, it sounds right but it feels wrong if that makes 
any sense at all.
Standard Tuning

Notation:
PM-Palm Mute
AH-Artificial Harmonic

Intro/Verse Riff
    G5 A5   A#5  A5     F5    E5   E5   D5

   |--------------------------------------|
   |--------------------------------------|
   |--------------------------9----9----7-|
   |-5--7----8----7------3----7-77-7-77-5-|
   |-3--5-55-6-66-5-5555-1-11-------------|
P.M.      ..   ..   ....   ..   ..   ..

The chord names above the staff will be important later so don't forget about 'em.

Chorus Riff

|-555555------------------------3-5-------|
This whole riff is Palm Muted except for the harmonic at the end.  
The .. after the 7 and 5 mean i didn't bother to count how many times 
to play that note, just play along with the music!  Also the number 
of A5 chords at the beginning vary sometimes.

Riff 3

|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|----------5--------10------------|
|-7--------3--------8-------2-4-5-|
|-5------0--------0---------0-2-3-|
    P.M. .        .         . . .

Let the chords ring.

Riff 4

|--------|     |---------|     |--------|
|--------|     |---------|     |--------|
|--------|     |---------|     |--------|
|--------| X 4 |---------| X 3 |--------|
|-7-9-10-|     |-9-11-12-|     |-11-9-7-|
|--------|     |---------|     |--------|

Again, this riff is also entirely palm muted.  Not too sure about this one either.

Riff 5

   |--------|     |---------|     |-----|
   |--------|     |---------|     |-----|
   |--------|     |---------|     |-----|

   |-7------|     |-10------|     |-2-5-|
   |-5-5555-|     |-8--8888-|     |-0-3-|
P.M.   ....            ....         . .

And here's the song structure...

Verse Riff X 12, vocals start the 8th time.
Chorus Riff X 4-the 4th time don't play the harmonic.
Verse Riff X 4
Chorus Riff X 4-again no harmonic the 4th time.
Riff 3 X 4
Riff 4 X 4
Riff 5 X 4
Verse Riff X 8, vocals start 4th time.
Chorus Riff X 4-no harmonic at the end, don't P.M. the last A5 chord, 
just hit it hard and abruptly stop.

Ok here's the line for guitar 2 during the intro, 
this is where them chords from the first riff are important.  
Guitar 2 plays chords the first 4 times the riff is played, 
here's what chords to hit.

1/2-G5 A5
3/4-G5 A5   A#5 A5

Thats it.
