Verse
The verse is divided into three different parts.  It is the same basic riff just a little different on the endings.  Kirk plays his riff along with Jaymz' three diffenent riffs.  I'll put all the different parts together at the end.

Jaymz  (Riff 1)                                Riff Ending

Here is the layout of the three different verse patterns:
After the intro:  Riff 1 (2x), Riff Ending (muted scratch,
                                              harmonics)
First part of verse:  Riff 1, Riff 2, Riff Ending
Second part of verse:  Riff 2, Riff 3, Riff Ending

   Fortune......................but the memory remains


This fill is played after the chorus and before Jaymz starts in on the second verse.  Riff 1 is played under this fill.  Try playing this fill through the neck pickup.  Sounds almost exactly like the CD.

"Dance little tin goddess"

The "Da, da, da" part has about five guitars playing under it, so I'm gonna try
and tab them the best I can.

This is rhythm part under the "Aye, da, da, da" part.

Ab--2--4--5--0-2-2--2--4--5--0-2-2---|
Eb--0--2--5------0--0--2--3------0---|

These next two parts are played together with the "Da, da, da" part.  It's
exactly the same as what she sings.

Finally figured out the high screechy part!!!  One guitar
plays the high ass part while the other doubles it lower.
The high part is played with some kind of messed up pitch
shifter effect or something.

Solo before the last "da, da, da" part.
