You basically are just playing the power chords from the chorus, but you pick the
individually.  And it just repeats through the whole song.  Sometimes you can palm mute it
verses or just pick more softly to make it more quiet and let it roar during the chorus, 
the second guitar plays the power chords for rhythm.  I guess you could also play it
and then switch to distortion.  Remember to give that certain string some vibrato.

(2nd Guitar joins in here - plays the same part.  Just throws in

Great tab, just really annoying to get the riff down.

I don't know if this is how Rivers plays the main riff, but I find it easier to play:

Eb|----------------2~---|
Bb|-----2~--------------|
Gb|--------------2---2--|
Db|---2---2----0--------|
Ab|-0-------------------|
Eb|---------------------|
