This is the intro riff (both guitars):

This is the next part (both guitars, doubled by bass):

                                                                      3x

This is the lead part that is played over top of the above rhythm
(straight 16ths, all palm muted, play 4 times):

Then there is another lead part played over top of both 
of the above parts. This is played by 2 guitars. They both
play exactly the same part, except one of them adds a
dotted quarter rest in front of the first bend at the 15th,
offsetting the entire part by a dotted quarter note. Play twice.

          dive w/bar
