Guitars 1 and 2 are the rhythm guitars that play throughout the
entire song. Guitar 3 enters at 2:07 and Guitar 4 at 2:22. They play
until the ending. Both guitars do not play the entire time until the
end, but at least one of them is always playing. I put what guitars
1 and 2 do first, and then put guitars 3 and 4 at the end, with the
time that they begin to play each line. Let me know if there is a
part you can not understand. I'll try to do my best to explain whatever
is confusing.

For the bends, I put the pitch of what it is being bent to. If the
number is in (), it is that pitch because of the bend, and at times
held for more than one note, meaning the bend remains from the previous
note. For example, 16b(17)  (17), your finger never leaves the
sixteenth fret. Sorry if this is confusing. Just let me know if you
need more information.
