AN ADVISE!:                             A-|--------...
                                        E-|125-5-5-...
If you found something like this --->       /s
You'll have to make a slide (from fret 12 to 5 in this case)   
When instead of a chord I put (N.P.), it means that you don't have to
play any chords there
USEFUL INFORMATION: Guitar 1 (The one who plays the riffs) plays with
soft distortion.
                    Guitar 2 (The one who plays chords) plays with no
distortion
These are the chords
       EADGBe      EADGBe
A     [x02220] or [577655]
C     [x32010] or [x35553]
