Riff 1 - Opening Riff

|------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|
|----4--5-----6--4--5-----4--5-------------|
|-4--3--4--4--5--3--4--4--3--4--6--4--7--5-|
|-3--------3-----------3--------5--3--6--4-|


|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|------4444-5555------66-44-5555------4444-5555-------------|
|-4444-3333-4444-4444-55-33-4444-4444-3333-4444-66-44-77-55-|
|-3333-----------3333------------3333-----------55-33-66-44-|

Note: Although I have put spaces in between these chords,
there is no break; it just makes it easier to read.

Riff 2

|--------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|
|------5555-7777-----------7777-9999---------|
|-4444-4444-6666-8888-6666-6666-8888--2----2-|
|-3333-----------7777-5555------------0----0-|
                                      M

Riff 3

|---------------------------|
|---------------------------|
|---------------------------|
|---------------------------|
|-----3------3--6---------4-|
|-1-1-1--2-2-1--4-4-4-4-4-2-|
  M M    M M      M M M M

Riff 4 - I guess this is sort of the verse riff

|-------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------|
|-----------7777-88---------5555-6666-|
|-6666-8888-6666-77-55-6666-4444-5555-|
|-5555-7777---------44-5555-----------|

Now go back and play Riff 3 again, then Riff 4 again

Riff 5

|--------------------------------------|
|----0-------0----------0-------0------|
|---0-0-0-----0-0------0-0-0-----0-0---|
|--4---4-------4-4----4---4-------4-4--|
|-3---------------3--2---------------2-|
|--------------------------------------|

On the second time you play this riff, do a slide up the
neck on the last note.

Riff 6

|------------------------------|
|--------------------0-----0---|
|---0-9-0---0-9-0---5-5---7-7--|
|--8-----8-8-----8-6---6-8---8-|
|-7-------7-------7-----9------|
|------------------------------|

The next part of the song isn't really constructed with riffs,
but instead with big long passages. I will try to tab the next
part in sections where possible to make it easier to follow.

|---------------------------------------------|
|----0-----0------0-----0-----1-----1-----0---|
|---7-7---7-7----7-7---6-6---0-0---0-0---0-0--|
|--8---8-8---8--8---8-5---5-2---2-2---2-2---2-|
|-9-----9------------4-----3-----3-----2------|
|-------------10------------------------------|

Play the next Riff twice, and do a big slide up and down
the neck afterwards.

|------------------------------------|
|-----1--------1--------1--------1---|
|-2----2---2----2---2----2---2----2--|
|-2-----2--2-----2--3-----3--3-----3-|
|-0--------0--------0--------0-------|
|------------------------------------|


|----------------------------------------------------
|----0-----0------0-----0-------------------0-----0--
|---7-7---7-7----7-7---6-6----0-----0-----0--0--0--0-
|--8---8-8---8--8---8-5---5--0-0---0-0---4-4---3-3---
|-9-----9------------4------4---4-4---4-3-----2------
|-------------10-----------2-----2-------------------


----------------------------------------------
-----------------0-----0-----0------0-----0---
-----0-----0----5-5---7-7---7-7----7-7---6-6--
----7-7---7-7--6---6-8---8-8---8--8---8-5---5-
---6-----6----7-----9-----9------------4------
--5-----5-----------------------10------------


------------------------------|
-------------------0-----0----|
-----0-----0-----0--0--0--0---|
----0-0---0-0---4-4---3-3---7-|
---4---4-4---4-3-----2------6-|
--2-----2-------------------5-|

Well, there was that big long passage I was telling you about.
This next Riff is really wierd. I figured it out, but I still
don't fully understand the timing of some of it.

|--------------------------------------------|
|------0-----0-----0----0----0-----0-----0---|
|-0-0-0-0---0-0---0-0-0--0-0--0---0-0---0-0--|
|--7-7---7-7---7-7---7-7--7-7--7-7---7-7---0-|
|---------6-----6---------------6-----6------|
|--------------------------------------------|

Riff 7

|----------------------------|
|----0-----1-----0-----------|
|---0-0---2-----0-0---0------|
|--2---2-2-----2---2-2-------|
|-2-----0---3-2-----0--------|
|----------------------3-2-0-|


This next Riff is played under the big drum roll, and
throughout the solo. I will tab the solo's at the end
of the song.

Riff 8

|-----------------------------|
|-----------------------------|
|---0------0------0------0----|
|--2-2-2--2-2-2--0-0-0--0-0-0-|
|-----2------2------5------4--|
|-0------0------3------2------|

The next Riff is played twice. Once before the 2nd solo,
and once after it. It is the outro Riff to the song.

Riff 9

|-------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------1-----1------------------------------|
|----0------0----0--0--0--0-----0-----0------0------0---|
|--2--2---0--0----2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2---0--0---0--0--|
|---2--2---2--2-3-----3--------2--2--2--2---5--5---4--4-|
|-0------3-------------------0-----0------3------2------|


This is the last Riff. It is played underneath the 2nd solo.

Riff 10

|------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------|
|---0-----0------0-----0------0-----0------0------0----|
|--2-2-2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-2--0-0-0--0-0-0-|
|-----2-----2--3---3-3---3------2-----2------5------4--|
|-0-----0-------------------0-----0------3------2------|

Now to finish the song off, you just go back and play Riff 9,
then end it on an "E minor" type chord. Now I will tab the
two solo's.

Solo 1

|----------------------------------------------|
|------------------12--10----10-12-10----10----|
|-9-11-12-9--11-12--------12----------12----12-|
|----------------------------------------------|

|-9-11-12-11-9-11--9-11-12----12-11-
|-----------------------------------
|-----------------------------------

...continued

--------------------------------------|
-----10-12-10----10----10-12-10-------|
--12----------12----12----------12-11-|
--------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------|

|---------------------------|

|-9-------12-11----11-12-11-|

Well there you have it, the whole song from start to finish.
It should all be there, but if you have any suggestions send
