I'm not entirely sure if the shaped chord at the end is right because Matt is screaming and the chord is heavily distorted.) -0--0-0-0--0--0-0-0--0--0-0-0------------------ -0--0-0-0--3--3-3-3--1--1-1-1--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3- -0--3-2-0--2--3-2-0--0--3-2-0--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2- -2--2-2-2--0--0-0-0--2--2-2-2--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0- -2--2-2-2--0--0-0-0--3--3-3-3------------------ -0--0-0-0------------------------------------ Towards the end of the song he varies the above progression such that he plays each chord and then plays the G-3br3-2-0 riff alone.
