Tabbed by GiveMeThePiss

Tuning : Standard

First of all, we can hear this note coming progressively :
e|-22~-|
b|-----|
g|-----|
D|-----|
A|-----|
E|-----|

Then comes the first verse. You can do a power chord, or like
Matt in concert : playing the string only, but use the Harmony
effect -1oct. on a Whammy pedal :
e|-----------------------------------------|
b|-----------------------------------------|
g|-----------------------------------------| x2
D|-----------5--------------------5--------|
A|-3-5---------5-7--3---3-5---------5-7--3-|
E|-----3--------------------3--------------|

e|-------------|
b|-------------|
g|-------------|
D|-------------|
A|-3-5-7--5--3-|
E|-------------|
(Note : if you prefer to play the power chords, use two strings
only, it'll sound better.)

Then comes what I call this "pre-chorus chord" :
e|-------------------------------------------|
b|-------------------8~-8~-8~-8~-8~-8~-8~-8~-|
g|-----------------9-------------------------|
D|--------10----10---------------------------|
A|---7-10----10------------------------------|
E|-8-----------------------------------------|

You can also play it this way, the basic C chord :
e|-------------0-3~-3~-3~-3~-3~-3~-3~-3~-|
b|-------1---1---------------------------|
g|-----0---0-----------------------------|
D|---2-----------------------------------|
A|-3-------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

Now, the chorus. I'm actually not quite sure of what's played,
but I heard something like this :
e|-------------------------------0-----0-----------------|
b|-----3-----3-----3-----1p0-----0-----0-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
g|-----0-----0-----0-----0-------0-----0-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-| x2
D|-----0-----0-----0-------------2-----2-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
A|-----x-----x-----x---------2-2---2-2-------------------|
E|-3-3---3-3---3-3---2-2-----0-0---0-0-------------------|

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
b|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
g|-----------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
D|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
A|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
E|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|

e|-------------------------------------------------------x-|
b|-------------------------------------------------------x-|
g|-----------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-5-5---x-|
D|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-5-5---x-|
A|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-3-3---x-|
E|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-3-3---x-|

Then, repeat the whole thing since the beginning (except the
first note). Now comes the solo. The bends you made are supposed
to make the same note as the b string :
e|-----------------------------------------|
b|-12-----12----12----12----12-------------|
g|-14b16--14b16-14b16-14b16-14b16r14-12~->-|
D|-----------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------------|
b|-12-----12----12-----------15b17r15p13-----|
g|-14b16--14b16-14b16r14-12~-----------------|
D|---------------------------------------14~-|
A|-------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------14b15~-15->-|
b|-12-----12----12-----------------------|
g|-14b16--14b16-14b16r14-12~-------------|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

e|-17b19r17-15-17-15----15------------------------------|
b|-------------------17----17-16-17-16-15---------------|
g|----------------------------------------17~-16b17r16~-|
D|------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------|

And solo goes on through the third verse :
e|-----------------------------------|
b|-12-----12----12-------------------|
g|-14b16--14b16-14b16r14-12-14-12~->-|
D|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------|
b|-15b17b15-13h15p13->-12--------------|
g|------------------------14p12-16b17~-|
D|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|

e|--------------------------------------|
b|-------------------------------19b20~-|
g|-16b17-17-17r16->-14->-12~->----------|
D|--------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|

During the last note of the solo, when you make a bend on the
b string, you play the pre-chorus chord, but in a bit different
way : you have to make a progressive bend on the last note :
e|-------------------------------------------|
b|-------------------7b-7b-7b-7b-7b-7b-8~-8~-|
g|-----------------9-------------------------|
D|--------10----10---------------------------|
A|---7-10----10------------------------------|
E|-8-----------------------------------------|

Or the basic C chord way :
e|-------------0-2b-2b-2b-2b-2b-3~-3~-3~-|
b|-------1---1---------------------------|
g|-----0---0-----------------------------|
D|---2-----------------------------------|
A|-3-------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

To finish the song after the last chorus, you just have these
three notes to play as an outro :
e|--------|
b|--------|
g|--------|
D|--------|
A|-3-5----|
E|-----3~-|

And you got it !
