There are 2 guitars in this song, particularly during the chorus. 
The little texture fills in the verses can be played by the  
second guitar as well.

This song took longer than I expected - just because of the solos. 
I know there's a couple of little mistakes in there I'm sure - I  
found it hard to pick out in spots - but it shouldn't be too bad... 

Cheers,
