Once the Distorted chord fades out, a clean part plays the intro again with a 
slightly different rhythm, so just modify the previous Intro as needed to end the song.


Key:
| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| PM palm mute
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| *  harmonic
| x  Mute note (or rake)
| b  bend (bends with vibrato bar indicated)
| r  release bend
| qb quarter bend (raise pitch slightly)
