For the end of the main melody; I will split it into 2 riffs. Read the tablature, 
and when it ends for the main melody, follow the steps there as if you were still 
playing the music. Do not read "riff 1" and skip to the end for instructions.
It assumes you've played the visible tablature and following the intructions 
upon reacing them. With that said:

The underlaying cymbal-like instrument heard in the beginning:

e|----------1--------|
B|--1-0-1-3---3-1-0--|
G|-------------------|
D|-------------------|
A|-------------------|
E|-------------------|

Repeated over and over; stop when intense part begins.

MAIN MELODY:

e|---------------------------|
B|-------------1-------------|
G|-----3-3-1-3-------0-------|
D|---------------3-----3--2--|
A|--3------------------------|

B|-------------1------------------|
G|-----3-3-1-3--------------------|
D|--------------------------------|
A|--3-----------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|

e|---------------1---3-1--0--|
B|-------------1-------------|
G|-----3-3-1-3---------------|

e|-8888888-11-8-8888888-11-8-8888888-11-8-7-8-10-|
B|-----------------------------------------------|

End intense part, remainder of song;

Riff 1:

e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------|
D|-1-1-1-1-1-1-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-0-0-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-1-1-|
A|---------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------| x2

B|--1--1--1--4--4--4--------------------|
G|--------------------------------------|

E|--------------------------------------|

e|--------------------3--3--3--3--3--3--|
B|-----------4--4--4--------------------|

A|--------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|

e|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|
B|--------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|

Repeat Riff 1 two times.
Repeat Riff 2 one time.

And that's it for the main melody!

One more thing; two background intstruments in between strings of note 
in both the beginning and intense part.

First one; in between beginning notes:

e|-------|
B|-------|
G|-1-1-1-|
D|-------|
A|-------|
E|-------|

And now in between the bouts of intense sequences; this synth 
instrument plays, very quickly:

e|-----------------|
B|---------------1-|
G|---------0-1-3---|
D|---0---3---------|
A|-----6-----------|
E|-8---------------|

That's finally it. Have fun.
