v = wide vibrato with bar 
\ = dive with bar 
. = palm muted 
# = tremelo picked 
  
after the clean-toned intro above, there are two guitars, both 
distorted. the  
lead guitar plays:

VERSE: 
Lead guitar takes a break, while rhythm guitar plays: 
 
(note: I'm not sure if the tap harmonics are really what he's doing, only 
that  
he does something of that nature to raise the octave of those 
notes. Personally, 
I just play the notes normally) 
  
*Rhy. Fig 2*

*: in case it's unclear, you hold that bend as you tremelo pick the 19,  
and then you bend it even further while continuing to trem pick 
  
GUITAR SOLO: 
  
for a few bars, there is no guitar whatsoever as the drum and bass set  
up the mood or whatever. then, the lead guitar comes in with: 
  
                     palm mute                               palm mute

OUTRO CHORUS: 
  
Rhythm guitar does nothing for a while, and lead plays the following: 
  
E|-5---5--5--5--5------5--------------------- 
B|-8b--8b-8b-8b-8br-5-8b-5-7-5-7-5----------

E|--------------------------------- 
  
At this point, the rhythm guitar enters with Rhy. Fig 1 as the lead  
continues. I think the rhythm guitar eventually goes up an octave,  
but it's not that important.
