  Sustain and hold, then slide down--^

Now everything kicks in.  For simplicity, here are the main parts:

Riff:
A-------------0h2h5--|
E--0-0---3-----------|

Note that Guitar 2 plays something like an G and an A chord over
Riff, but I couldn't figure out which ones.

Anyways, pretty good tab for an awesome song. Just a quick correction.
2/3 of the way down, when you say:
"Note that Guitar 2 plays something like an G and an A chord over
Riff, but I couldn't figure out which ones."
I think the chords go in powerchords something like this:
E-E--G-G-D
not A.

Anyways, great tab! Thanks a lot! :D
