G#|-5---------------|-4---------------|---4-----------4-|---4-----------4-|
D#|-----------------|-----------------|-3---------------|-3---------------|

2nd verse
Not much is different here, besides playing the riff 2 extra times. There are still 
small variations:

  PM---------------------------|    PM----------------------------------------------------|
D#|---------------------------------|-----------------|-----------------|-------------------------|x6
A#|---------------------------------|-----------------|-----------------|-------------------------|
F#|---------------------------------|-----------------|-----------------|-------------------------|
C#|------------------------------9--|-----------------|-----------------|-------------------------|

D#|-0---0---0---0---0---0---0---(0)-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6----0----|
                                 
                             


2nd chorus
Nothing different from the first chorus:
 
D#|---------0-------|---------0-------|-----------------|-----------------|x4
A#|-------3---3-----|-------2---2-----|---------0-------|---------0-------|
F#|-----6-------6---|-----5-------5---|-------5---5-----|-------5---5-----|

G#|-5---------------|-4---------------|---4-----------4-|---4-----------4-|
D#|-----------------|-----------------|-3---------------|-3---------------|

Bridge
Same chord played throughout, just with tempo changes:

D#|--0-0-0-0|-x--0--x--0-0-0-0-0--|-x--0--x--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-----|
A#|--3-3-3-3|-x--3--x--3-3-3-3-3--|-x--3--x--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----|
F#|--6-6-6-6|-x--6--x--6-6-6-6-6--|-x--6--x--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-----|
C#|--4-4-4-4|-x--4--x--4-4-4-4-4--|-x--4--x--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-----|
G#|--5-5-5-5|-x--5--x--5-5-5-5-5--|-x--5--x--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----|
D#|---------|-x-----x-------------|-x-----x----------------------|
      (x1)           (x6)                       (x1)

Final pre-chorus

Lead part:

D#|-19-19-19-19-|-19b20-20-20br19-|-19b20br19---||--------21----21-||--------21------| 
A#|-------------|-----------------|----------18-||-17--17----17----||-17--17---------|
F#|-------------|-----------------|-------------||-----------------||----------------|
C#|-------------|-----------------|-------------||-----------------||----------------|
G#|-------------|-----------------|-------------||-----------------||----------------|
D#|-------------|-----------------|-------------||-----------------||----------------|
   *          Repeat this section twice              1st ending       2nd ending


Backing rhythm part:

D#|-16-----16-----16-----16-----16-----16-15-----15-----15---17-----17----17---|x2
A#|---15-----15-----15-----15-----15--------15-----15----------15-----15-------|
F#|-----18-----18-----18-----18-----18--------18-----18---18-----18-----18--18-|
C#|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G#|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D#|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then, a new backing rhythm continues 2 more times while the new lead part comes in:

New lead: 

D#|---------0-------|---------0-------|-----------------|-----------------|x2
A#|-------3---3-----|-------2---2-----|---------0-------|---------0-------|
F#|-----6-------6---|-----5-------5---|-------5---5-----|-------5---5-----|
C#|---4-----------4-|---3-----------3-|-----0-------0---|-----0-------0---|
G#|-5---------------|-4---------------|---4-----------4-|---4-----------4-|
D#|-----------------|-----------------|-3---------------|-3---------------|

New backing rhythm:

D#|-16-----16-----16----15-----15-----15---17-----17-----17-----17-----17----17---|x2
A#|---15-----15-----------15-----15----------15-----15-----15-----15-----15-------|
F#|-----18-----18---18------18-----18---18-----18-----18-----18-----18-----18-----|
C#|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G#|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D#|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Final chorus
(Heavy distortion)
These are the main chords, listen to the song to get a feel for the strumming pattern:

D#|---------|-----x-x-|---------|-----------|x11
A#|---------|-----x-x-|---------|-----------|
F#|-7-7-7-7-|-6-6-x-x-|---------|-----------|
C#|-7-7-7-7-|-6-6-x-x-|-5-5-5-5-|-5-5-5-5---|
G#|-5-5-5-5-|-4-4-x-x-|-5-5-5-5-|-5-5-5-5---|
D#|-5-5-5-5-|-4-4-x-x-|-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-3-3---|

After 4 times, the lead part comes in, which is a variation of the chord picking riff, 
just an octave higher. It
sounds as if it would be played like this on the recording:


D#|---------12-------|---------12-------|------------------|------------------|
A#|-------15--15-----|-------14--14-----|---------12-------|---------12-------|
F#|-----18------18---|-----17------17---|-------17--17-----|-------17--17-----|
C#|---16----------16-|---15----------15-|-----12------12---|-----12------12---|
G#|-17---------------|-16---------------|---16----------16-|---16----------16-|
D#|------------------|------------------|-15---------------|-15---------------|

However, this would be difficult to pick so on the 
recording either an octave pedal or 12th fret capo was probably used. They don't play it
this way anyway; they play it the following
way live, which doesn't sound too much different:

D#|---------0-------|---------0-------|---------------|------------------|x7
A#|-------15-15-----|-------14-14-----|--------0------|--------0---------|
F#|-----18-----18---|-----17-----17---|------17-17----|------17-17-------|
C#|---16---------16-|---15---------15-|-----0-----0---|-----0-----0------|
G#|-17--------------|-16--------------|---16-------16-|---16-------16----|
D#|-----------------|-----------------|-15------------|-15---------------|

Then, the final few measures.

Rhythm:

D#|-----------------|-------------------|---------|-------|
A#|-----------------|-------------------|---------|-------|
F#|-7---7---7---7---|--6---6------------|---------|-------|
C#|-7---7---7---7---|--6---6------------|-5-------|-------|
G#|-5---5---5---5---|--4---4------------|-5-------|-------|
D#|-5---5---5---5---|--4---4------------|-3-------|-------|

Lead:

D#|---------0-------|-------------------|---------|-------|
A#|-------15-15-----|-------------------|---------|-------|
F#|-----18-----18---|-------------------|---------|-------|
C#|---16---------16-|---15--------------|---------|-------|
G#|-17--------------|-16----------------|---------|-------|
D#|-----------------|-------------------|---------|-------|
