I noticed that there was only a bass tab for this piece and all the guitar tab 
aggregates were taking
the bass tab as an electric lead tab, so I decided this one needed doing.

Tuning: Standard

Rhythm Main
A lot of room for variation on this one, be creative.

e||---9------9-------------------------||

Lead "Verse" (0:49)
Technically, two different guitars play one string, but it's easy enough solo.

A||--6h8-9---------------8h9---9-8--||
E||---------------------------------||

After the keyboard break, there's more of the main riff, main chord, transition etc. 
Easy enough to figure out.
Once it starts picking up, there's also a sped up version of the transition.
Then:

Rhythm Main 2
The notes in between the chords are actually the keyboard, try artificial or natural 
harmonics for a better sound.

e||---9/10--10--10---9-----------9/10--10--10---9----------||
B||*--9/10--10--10---9-----------9/10--10--10---9---------*||

E||---9/10--10--10---9-----------9/10--10--10---9----------||

Lots of guitar feedback from the lead, then:
