NOTE**** PLEASE LISTEN TO SALIVAL the first time you follow this tab....to see where I was coming from....**
 
(when guitar slides come in.........somewhere around 1:02)
 
w/ Distortion & Bass whammy (1 octave up)

Strike the chord, use the whammy to do misc. slides..
 
(2:11) very Tricky....practice and you'll nail it. 
 
Here is a video of the riff (I apologize for the crappy sound in the vid)

The riff switches and sounds palm muted, but it is not! I believe that in the studio version the bass was turned
down in the mix. In the live version it is clearly not PM. Please note the C is in the riff below, it is hard to hear
but it is there, listen closely!
 
Another video for this riff, notice the G (5th fret low D) is picked, not hammered. This is a tricky riff which
Takes practice.
