[Intro]
Guitar plays for two measures, then... (careful, its a toughie)
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------5(~)-------------------------------------------5(~)-----------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

There are two ways to play the verse, there is the easy way, which has been tabbed 
and the way Matt plays it, I will tab both and you can decide which is easier, I personally 
both)

[Verse] (version one)
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---5-5-x-3-3-x-8-8-x-1-1-x-5-5-x-3-3-x-8-8-x-1-1-x-x-----------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The x's can be replaced with the previous note, to look like this if you like...

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---5-5-5-3-3-3-8-8-8-1-1-1-5-5-5-3-3-3-8-8-8-1-1-1-1-----------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

[Verse] (version 2 correct version)
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------8-8-------------------------8-8--------------------------|
E|----10-10-x-8-8-x-----x-6-6-x-x-10-10-x-8-8-x-----x-6-6-x-x----------------|

Same principal applies for the above as they did for version one. The X's can be 
with the previous note.

[Pre Chorus]
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------------------------------|

[Chorus] (same as verse)
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---5-5-x-3-3-x-8-8-x-1-1-x-5-5-x-3-3-x-8-8-x-1-1-x-x-----------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The x's can be replaced with the previous note, to look like this if you like...

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---5-5-5-3-3-3-8-8-8-1-1-1-5-5-5-3-3-3-8-8-8-1-1-1-1-----------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

[Post Chorus]

[Solo] (variation on verse, for correct sound, you have to use light distortion and the 
[Verse 2]
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------8-8-8-0---------------------------8-8-8-0---------------|
E|---10-10-0-8-8-8-0---------6-6-6-0-0-10-10-0-8-8-8-0---------6-6-6-0-0-----|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------5-------------------------------------------|
E|---3--3--3--3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---------------------------------------------|

Solo continues throughout the final verse before finishing on...

I'm pretty sure he uses the solo pattern for the entire song. I can hear the dips in the song's sound on each change where the 0s are at.
