This is my first tab. I know, that there are mistakes in it, if you
have corrections, please contact me.

INTRO Part 1: 0:00 - 0:41

Actually the following melody is played by a flute (and 2 octaves
higher). But if you don't have a flute (or aren't able to play
guitar and flute at the same time) it sounds best if you just play
the melody. On the recording, the acoustic guitar strumms to the
melody from time to time - the chords I wrote down should sound fine
for this.

INTRO Part 3: 1:55 - 2:35
The same as Part 1, but the flute melody is now played by an
e-guitar. Just the ending is slightly different, but you will easily
get it. The power chords are also played by an e-guitar now -
basically the same way as noted above, for the palm muted stuff that
appears twice or so the rhythm guitar plays the same notes as the
melody.
and it's better to use a fingering without open strings now.

INTRO Part 4: 2:36 - 3:11

Play two times, the ending is a bit different the second time, but
you should easily get it.

CHORUS: 6:29 - 6:49

SECOND BRIDGE Part 1: 6:50 - 7:31
Same as the intro melody, play the last bar two times

SECOND BRIDGE Part 2: 7:32 - 8:07

Rhythm, Guitar is strumming some Bmin stuff to a flute melody, which
is close to the guitar part, that's following then:
