The Choruses are something like the into:

    You know that you want it....                                  etc...
e|----|             |-------|           |-------|          |-------|      |----|
B|----|             |---3---|           |---5---|          |---3---|      |----|
G|-2--|             |---2---|           |---4---|          |---2---|      |-2--|
D|-2--|             |---4---|           |---6---|          |---4---|      |-2--|
A|-O--|             |---O---|           |---O---|          |---O---|      |-O--|
E|----|             |-------|           |-------|          |-------|      |----|

Then there's that break thing with this awesome run...

Pretty good tab. I kinda wished there was more of it, but its not bad as a basis for me to start out on ya know.

BTW I'm pretty sure the main riff part goes like this:

e-----------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------------------------
G-7---------------5-----------------------5--2--5
D-7--------0------5----------5-4--5-------5--2--5
A-5----pm2---\5~~-3--pm2-3-5------2---pm2-3--0--7
E----pm5-----------pm5--------------pm5----------


Your way still sounds fine playing the open A string in the begining instead of the fifth fret 6 string. Thats just how I thought it goes^^
