i was chiling so here is the whole song. including the mainriff (verse) and the solos...

h  =hammer on
p  =pulloff
lb =lightbend (just give it a little push up)
b  =bend      (around a half step)
hb =heavybend (around a full step)
~  =vibrato

mainriff: is a humprythm 3/4 (this is played during the verse (you can use any twist of 
humprythm that you want))

mainriff part1
           x8             x4             x4
e|---------    e|---------    e|---------|
b|---------    b|---------    b|---------|
G|---------    G|---------    G|---------|
D|---------    D|-7-7-7-9-    D|---------|
A|-7-7-7-9-    A|-5-5-5-5-    A|-7-7-7-9-|
E|-5-5-5-5-    E|---------    E|-5-5-5-5-|

mainriff part2
            x2             x2             x4
e|----------    e|---------    e|---------|
b|----------    b|---------    b|---------|
G|----------    G|---------    G|---------|
D|-9-9-9-11-    D|-7-7-7-9-    D|---------|
A|-7-7-7-7--    A|-5-5-5-5-    A|-7-7-7-9-|
E|----------    E|---------    E|-5-5-5-5-|

the intro is the signatureriff + a solo

signatureriff:
 this is the most important part of the song (if you get this right you are allowed to 
any solo and peopol will still know what the fu*k you are playing)

e|-------------------------------|
b|-------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-7--9-9-7--5-5-|-7-9-7-5-7-5-5-|
E|-5--7-7-5--3-3-|-5-7-5-3-5-3-3-|

interlude: this bridge mainriff and solo

e|-5h8p5h8p5h8p5h8p5- do this for some time
b|-------------------|
G|-------------------|
D|-------------------|
A|-------------------|
E|-------------------|

solo1: this is easy to play and sounds awsome if your timing is right

e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
b|-8hb-5hb---------------------------------------------------|
G|---------7b-5-7-5---5---5b--5b-5b-5b-5b-5b-5b-5b---5-7bp-5-|
D|------------------7---7--------------------------7---------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|

you star playing the mainriff at the same time as solo1 and keep playing until the end.

after the verse its time for...

Solo2: here timing is = awsome. screwup = all the song suck!

e|-----------------------|----------|---------------|
b|----------------5------|----------|---------------|
G|-5b-----5-7-5-7---7-5lb|slide down|-7lb-5b-7b-7p5-|
D|----7lb----------------|----------|---------------|
A|-----------------------|----------|---------------|
E|-----------------------|----------|---------------|

comense mainriff

after the verse you play

                  x2
e|-----------------|
b|-----------------|
G|-----------------|
D|-----------------|
A|-----------7-9-7-|
E|-5-8-7-9-8-5-7-5-|

instead of mainriff part 2

after that the mainriff stops and -

-the intro is played once

then play bridge2

e|-5h8p5h8p5h8p5h8p5/6h9p6h9p6h9p6h9p6h9p6h9p6/7h10p7h10p7h10p7h10- and in reverse
b|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

then mainriff is started along with

solo3: this is kickass and if you blow this you havent heard the song...

e|--------------------|
b|--------------------|
G|--------------------|
D|-7b-7b-7b-7p5---5---|
A|--------------7---7-|
E|--------------------|

e|-8b-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---------|
b|---------------------8-8-8~-| slide down
G|----------------------------|
D|----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|

Ending: this is played after solo3

D|-7-5---7-5---|

too bad that it´s indirectly shown how they play it on the new album (back from the dead) it actually goes:

E|---------3-3-------3-------
A|-0-2-2-0-5-5-0-2-0-5-0-2-2-
D|-2-4-4-2-5-5-2-4-2-5-2-4-4-
G|-2-4-4-2-----2-4-2---2-4-4-
