And it ends ... or does it?

As the octave effect used in this song might not be avaliable to everyone, I thought I 
tab it using power chords for those people who:
a) Don't have an octave effect available
b) Thought it sounded shit because their effect wasn't good enough (eg. me -   my 
unit is not quite up to standard)

So here goes - the sections below should be substituted for their namesakes in the tab above.
