ahjajahahja hajhajhahaahj (i think) :)
after you did that you just strum those same cords a couple of times
it goes something like this (guitar 2)
figure 1
e: -------------------------------------------------------------------
B: -------------------------------------------------------------------
G: -------------------------------------------------------------------
D: --11--11--x-x-x--11--11--x-x-x-x--11--11--x-x-x--11--11--x-x-x-x---

E: --5---5---x-x-x--5---5---x-x-x-x--5---5---x-x-x--5---5---x-x-x-x---

these rakes may be a little of so you'll have to listen
to the record for the exact timing (it's easy though)
okay you play this part 2 times
the second time this riff gets played VARIATON 1(guitar 1) is played over it
Figure 2

E: --x-x--9-----------------------x-x-x-x-(5)-------------------

Breath in breath out (2x) .. Breath in.......tied to a wheel
Okay from here it's just the C#5 A5 cord (Figure 1) for the verse
here's the lyrics
-tied to a wheel fingers got to feel
-feeling to a tolocate smile
-i spin on a whim i slide to the right
-i felt you like electric light
-for our love
(riff 1 starts here and get's played three times)
-for our fear
-for our rise against the years and years and years
Okay some change here
(guitar stops)
-Got a machinehead better than the rest }
-green to red.... machinehead } this part gets played twice } the second time with this
} the second time with this
} guitar
e: ----------------|                   |-----------|

E: ----------------|                   |-----------|

D: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
A: -4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--/--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--\-slide back to 4-and repeat as many--
E: -2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--/--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--\-slide back to 2-times as you like---

but for the last
time you play it
play -2 instead of
-0
instead of
 -4-2
                                                                        after that he strums something in the E chord and thats it!
