Heavy Part - Rhythm guitar - Again, I'll only write the chords once.
You figure out the rhythms.  It's a waste of time to write out every single one.
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-3--5--7--10-----------------------------|
|-3--5--7--10-----------------------------|
|-1--3--5--8------------------------------|
The 5-7-7 chord is longer and the 8-10-10 chord is a short ending to the previous.

(0:56)

|----------------------------------|
|-9--7--12--4--5-4-9--7--12--7--9--|

2nd Verse
Play the beginning palm muted section along with the [5] harmonics section again.
At the end of this section, slowly release the muting on the chords.

(1:38)
2nd Heavy Part (this part was hard, may not be correct)
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|-------4--2--------7-----|
|-3--2--5--2--3--2--7--5--|
|-3--3--2--0--3--3--5--5--|
|-1--0--------1--0-----3--|

(1:38)
2nd Heavy Part - Lead guitar (I can barely hear this part so don't be surprised if it's 
wrong, sounds nice though)
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------|
|-5--4--9-----13--9--5-4-----5--4--9-----5--4--9-----|
|----------------------------------------------------|
|-3--2--7-----11--7--3-2-----3--2--7-----3--2--7-----|

|--------------|
|--------------|
|--------------|
|-3--5--7--10--|
|-3--5--7--10--|
|-1--3--5--8---|

(2:06)
2nd Heavy Part - Part 2 - Lead (this sounds strange but I'm sure it's how it goes)
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|-7b9r7------7b9r7------7b9r7--|
|-------6--6-------7--7--------|
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
Those are bends and releases.  Repeat this until it changes.

(2:20)
|---------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------|
|-9--7--12--16--17--16--9--7--12--7--9--|
|---------------------------------------|
|-7--5--10--14--15--14--7--5--10--5--7--|
|---------------------------------------|

(2:34)
Then it changes soft again with the palm mutings and the [5] harmonics.
It just has a different rhythm.

(2:48)
Then the muting rhythm stays and the lead changes to the riff with delays.
It ends with this riff.
|------------------------|
|------------------------|
|------------------------|
|-7-7--7-7--7-7--7-7--5--|
|-7-7--7-7--7-7--7-7--5--|
|-5-5--5-5--5-5--5-5--3--|

(lead)
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|-14-14--14-14--14-14--14-14--17--|
|---------------------------------|
|-12-12--12-12--12-12--12-12--15--|
|---------------------------------|

(3:02)
After this, play the Heavy Part - Part 1 again. It's the part I was unsure about the right notes.

(3:30)
Continue into Heavy Part - Part 2
Part of this plays differently.  When you hear this, play these lead riffs in order.
(3:44)
|--------------------|
|--------------------|
|-9--7--12--4--5--4--|
|--------------------|
|-7--5--10--2--3--2--|
|--------------------|

|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|-7b9r7------7b9r7------7b9r7--|
|-------6--6-------7--7--------|
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|

(3:58)
Then it continues back into this part.

|---------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------|
|-9--7--12--16--17--16--9--7--12--7--9--|
|---------------------------------------|
|-7--5--10--14--15--14--7--5--10--5--7--|
|---------------------------------------|

(4:12)
Here's the end! Yay!  It's pretty easy.
Use these chords again, just a different rhythm.
|--------------|
|--------------|
|--------------|
|-3--5--7--10--|
|-3--5--7--10--|
|-1--3--5--8---|

Lead
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|-13-13-13-13--12--10--9--7--9-9--|
|---------------------------------|
|-11-11-11-11--10--8---7--5--7-7--|
|---------------------------------|

So there you go.  Just figure out all the rhythms (I really didn't want to spend hours 
each chord 10 times) and you're good to go!  Please tell me if that one part is wrong and 
me a better way to play it!  I would appreciate it.
