All that's left of the song is 2 small harmonic riffs that play for 3 straight minutes
the end, we'll call them Closing Riff 1 anbd Closing Riff 2.


Closing Riff 1:

Lead: (the effect is some sort of volume/wah, each notes fades in and out slightly)
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
F------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-8--------------------6-----------------------2-------------------------4-----------|
C------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Closing Riff 2:

Rhythm: (same fade effect as lead, but with more fuzz and what I think is a phaser)
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
F------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C---10~~~~~~~~10~~~~~~9~~~~~~9~~~9~~~9~~~10~~~7~~~~7~~~~~5~~~~~7~~~~7~~~~~5----------|
G------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
