The Solo for this song is quite complicated and hard to understand, so that will take me a while to tab.
However, when I'm done, I will post it in a seperate tab. Until then, enjoy.

Very nice, I play this on an acoustic so I prefer to do the actual chords, (instead of the power chords, for the main riff), and it sounds pretty good inn case anyone wants to try it like that.
