  "Now you do what they toldja…" When the main groove re-enters, you mute the strings and play along with the drums after the riff. Then at times, Tom will come in with random noise (pick scrapes, slides, yadda yadda…) On the final bar, you’ll play the riff and then slide up one octave and tremolo pick the D octave chord specified.

  Guitar Solo: All right. This may not be the correct way to play it considering on the video, Tom plays it differently. Although if you bust out your pitchshift, just tremolo pick the notes and raise the pitch an octave as you hit the E string while you drop the pitch back to normal as you get to the G string. For that final note, raise the pitch back up an octave. Do the same with the following bar.

For the infamous "Fuck you I won’t do what you tell me" part, tremolo pick the following octave chords in this order.

G|-7-9-10-12-14-15-17-19-|

Then go back to the riff with that kinda swing feel (you heard me… the rhythm kinda sounds swingish).

  Dm7 played while Zack screams "Motherfucker!"

The rest you can figure out.
