Verse and chorus backing:

Guitar 1 plays the same backing for the verse as for the chorus.
It's a relatively simple part, however, the difficulty lies in the
fact that some notes have to be played staccato (= short) throughout
the song. So take note of the dots under the tabs to make it sound
good. The strings are also slightly muted by the right-hand. Just
let the leftside of your right handpalm slightly rest on the strings.
Use downstrokes for the single notes and upstrokes for the double
stops.

During the break, there's a leadguitar playing over the same riff
as in the intro.

At the end the chorus is played twice. During the first time, you
have to replace the last bar of the chord sequence by:

  1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +

D|9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---|

A|7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---|

And add the following bars to finish the song:

  1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +    1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +

At the end of verse 3 and 5 the bar that leads into the chorus is

Chorus:

I actually think that this is an overdub and that the pumping of
the powerchords in straight eights (like in the verse) is continuing
here.

  1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +    1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +

The second chorus leads into the break. Replace here the last two
bars of the chorus by:

  1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +    1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +

At the end the chorus is played twice. During the first time, you
have to replace the last two bars of the chord sequence by:
