I saw the tab for this song already posted and I checked it out. . I
have a few more things to add.

Main riff:
This riff is pretty easy. . .this is how I play it. . .(Heavy on the distortion)

Solo 1- I think it's pretty accurate

I couldn't transcribe the rest of the solos to my satisfaction, so I
left them out. The only other part of the song I know is the following.
