There are 3 main arrangements. The first are the three notes that begin the
song and stay constant throughout almost all of it:

E  :------------7---------------------7---------|
B  :------8-----------8---------8-----------8---|
G  :5---------------------5---------------------|
D  :--------------------------------------------|
A  :--------------------------------------------|
E  :--------------------------------------------|

The next is a lower melody that is much slower paced than the riff listed above,
but plays underneath it for the first half of the song:

E  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
B  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
G  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
D  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
A  :10---------------------10-----------------------7-----------------------
E  :------------------------------------------------------------------------

E  :-----------------------|
B  :-----------------------|
G  :-----------------------|
D  :-----------------------|
A  :7----------------------|
E  :-----------------------|

E  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
B  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
G  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
D  :-------------------------------------9----------------------------------
A  :10-----------9-----------7----------------------------------------------
E  :-------------------------------------------------9-----------9----------

The 3rd melody that plays during the first half of the song is even simpler:

E  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
B  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
G  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
D  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
A  :7-------5------3-------7-------3--------------7-------7-----------------
E  :-----------------------------------------7------------------------------

Moving onto the 2nd half of the song, there are only two melodies to be mindful of before it loops.
First is the higher melody, which is a slight variation of the main riff we’re all familiar with/terrified of:

E  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
B  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
G  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
D  :------------9----------9------------------------------------------------
A  :10----10----9----9------------10----9-----------------------------------
E  :-----------------------------------------------8------------------------

Which then transitions to…

E  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
B  :-------------------12---------------------------------------------------
G  :9----12---11-----------9----9-------------------------------------------
D  :----------------------------------------12-----12------10-----10--------
A  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
E  :------------------------------------------------------------------------

E  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
B  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
G  :9-----------------------------------------------------------------------
D  :-----10----9-----12-----------------------------------------------------
A  :------------------------------------------------------------------------
E  :------------------------------------------------------------------------

And this repeats forever…but, that’s why we love it, right?
Listen to original for reference as to which parts go with which.
