(part 3)

this is the first part with distortion
the chorus is quite easy is just two chords,

these are the chords on the chorus: B-A-B-A-B-A-B-G (then comes solo)
(behind the chords for the chorus, another guitar picks out the chords
 as another one strums the chords)

solo part:
behind the solo, he plays these chords (A-G) but you could also play (B-A)
whatever you choose is fine.......

E |-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B |--------------------------------------------------------12-12--10--|
G |--11-11--9---11--11--9-----------------------11-11--9--------------|
D |--------------------------9-9--6---9--9--6-------------------------|
A |-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E |-------------------------------------------------------------------|

E |-------------------------------------|
B |-------------------------------------|
G |--------------------------9--11---9--|
D |--9-9--6---9--9--6----6s9---------9--|
A |-------------------------------------|
E |-------------------------------------|

after the solo (which there is only one) comes parts 2 and parts 3
alternating back and forth for a while..........then everything is
basically combined

you play the alternatina B-A riff over the first parts

this part is the only cryptic part of the song, there doesn't seem
to be a pattren in this part, the below part is played three times
somtimes, or two times sometimes, or even one time....i will try
my best to explain it

  listen to see how many times you play this part
E |---------------------|
B |---------------------|
G |--11-13-13-13-13-13--| while playing this part, another guitarist
D |---------------------| (and the bassist) plays a B-chord (or note)
A |--9--11-11-11-11-11--| behind this part
E |--0--0--0--0--0--0---|

this is always played once after the above
E |---------------------------------------|
B |---------------------------------------|
G |--11-13-13--11-11--9--11-11--11-11--9--|  for the first three strums
D |---------------------------------------|  it is a B-Chord, then an
A |--9--11-11--9--9---7--9--9---9--9---7--|  A-chord is played
E |--0--0--0---0--0---0--0--0---0--0---0--|
     (B-chord) (    play an A-chord     )

oh.......yeah, the do a lot of fill in solos and stuff, you could
use this scale and go crazy with the whole fucking thing and use
your creative skills

the notes are in no particular order
E |-------------------------------------------------9--12--14--|
B |------------------------------------7--9--12--14------------|
G |-----------------------6--9--11--13-------------------------|
D |--------------6--9--11--------------------------------------|
A |--------9--11-----------------------------------------------|
E |--9--12-----------------------------------------------------|
