Note - This is the lead part.  There are periods of silence in this part.
The rhythm guitar plays chords throughout.  You can find them on this site.
It's probably not exact, but it's very close.  
This is the first tab I've written or published so if my formatting is 
incorrect or confusing I apologize.  You can email me with comments/questions

Hadn't thought of that, but now that I go back and listen to it I think you're right. Thanks!
