Hey guys, this is a pretty simple song. The chorus could be tricky for you at first, but 
something you can pick up pretty quick.

Intro - First two notes are in sync with the
first time the the rhythm guitarist plays it.
You could play fours on D instead of the nines on A.
G|----------|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----7-----|-----/99999999----------------77777777--------------------------------|
E|-------7--|---------------------55555555---------------77777777------------------| 3x

Verse is the second part of the intro,
but if you want to play it in the same
octave as the guitarist, play the following.

G|---------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------7-7-77--------------|
E|--2-2-22--5-5--55------------77--------------|

You want to put some agressiveness behind
the first two hits of each note, except the last 7.
Right before the chorus, slide up to 14 on A, or 9 on D.

Chorus - Its a weird rhythm to get down, so listen carefully.
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--11---11------------9---9-----------7---7------------------------------|
A|------9-----11-9-------7----9-7-------5----7-5-----44444----------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then back to the verse, then the chorus again. Then comes the bridge and solo.

In the bridge, play the chorus, then when
the solo breaks out, play the lower octave (on E) verse.
There are a few fills, but it's just some simple octave-up stuff.
Then head back into the chorus, and then you're done.

Great song, one of my favorites from the album.
