I count at least three rhythm guitars playing during the verse: two electrics (one in
channel) and one acoustic in the left channel playing chords, though there may be another
in there somewhere.  Neither of the two electric guitars play the same thing twice, so 
above tab is a general approximation of what to play (based on the first time through
riff as heard in the right channel).  Have fun with it.

This is as close as I could get for the end.

Great job capturing the essence of how this song is played. I'm not well versed in this tuning, but it's very common for Rich to use it. I checked this out, and I believe this tab IS the way it is to be played. Might be missing some little nuances here and there, but that's where the person playing it should incorporate his own thing. The song is sorta loose anyway. Plus, when the drums kick in, there are two guitar parts playing slightly different things. The other tab for this isn't half bad, but the song is much cooler and easier to play in this tuning. I LOVE this song!

That was exactly my point with this tab. Glad you like it.
