Listen to the song closely to see where the notes are being played,I think it 
starts as soon as guitar 1 plays the first c#5 chord in the chorus.

Interlude:

Guitar 3 -

I'm not to sure on this bit. I think I got it 100% but it was hard to hear over 
the other guitar and the speaking.

   LET THE NOTES RING

Guitar 4 -

You have to listen very carefully on this bit for the timings. I also don't have a 
guitar of which the whammy bar can go back (as of yet) so some of it is guessing 
but if you're like me and your whammy bar can't go back then just slide to it or 
use hammer ons and pull offs.

Listen to the song closely to see where the notes are being played.

Guitar 5 (outro/chorus solo) -

This starts a bit later on in the outro chorus so again you have to listen to the 
song closely. I have tabbed the solo from 2:40, I think there is a bit of lead 
before then but it is to quiet for me to hear.

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------13h16p13------13h16p13------16(18)16(18)----------------13-------|
G|-15(17)--------15(17)--------15(17)-bu----bu--13h15~~-----13-15--13~----|
D|--bu------------bu-----------------------------------13-15----------15~~|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Will finish the rest of the outro very very soon, like maybe tommorow.
Thanks for looking at my tab, please rate and leave your comments.
