Dont Fear The Reaper Tab

This first section is the intro. It works in a kind of echo effect.  You play the first 4 notes, then let the last one ring and so on. It sounds best when you gradually get softer through out the 4 intervals.
Note: this does not contain the solo sorry guys
Here it is:

Intro

E-------------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------------------
G------2--0---------------0-------------0---------------0-----
D----2-----------------0-------------0---------------0--------  *This is play 8 times
A--0----------------2-------------3---------------2-----------
E----------------3-------------1---------------3--------------

Chorus/Vocals Guitar (what you hear in the background behind the vocals and chorus:
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
G-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0--------0---
D-----------------------2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2------------------------2-2-2-2------------------0--------0-----
A--3-3-3-3----5-5-5-5---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---3-3-3-3---2-2-2-2----0-0-0-0----5-5-5-5-----3--------2-------
E--1-1-1-1----3-3-3-3---------------------1-1-1-1---0-0-0-0---------------3-3-3-3---1--------3---------

After that it repeats the intro section 9 times and then plays this chord:
E----0--
B----1--
G----2--
D----2--
A----0--
E-------
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/blue_oyster_cult/dont_fear_the_reaper_tab_ver_2.html ]
Then the whole vocals section up to here repeats itself:
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
G-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0--------0---
D-----------------------2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2------------------------2-2-2-2------------------0--------0-----
A--3-3-3-3----5-5-5-5---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---3-3-3-3---2-2-2-2----0-0-0-0----5-5-5-5-----3--------2-------
E--1-1-1-1----3-3-3-3---------------------1-1-1-1---0-0-0-0---------------3-3-3-3---1--------3---------

The second half/ending of the song goes like this: 
E----------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------
G---------------------------------------------------- X 2
D--2-2-2-2-------------------------------------------
A--0-0-0-0-----5-5-5-5----3-3-3-3------5-5-5-5-------
E--------------3-3-3-3----1-1-1-1------3-3-3-3-------

then...
E----------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------
G-----------------------------------0--------0-------
D----2-2-2-2----------------------0--------0---------
A----0-0-0-0-----5-5-5-5--------3--------2-----------
E----------------3-3-3-3------1--------3-------------

Then the intro section is played 9 times again:
E-------------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------------------
G------2--0---------------0-------------0---------------0-----
D----2-----------------0-------------0---------------0-------- X 9 
A--0----------------2-------------3---------------2-----------
E----------------3-------------1---------------3--------------

Then it closes on this chord:
E----0--
B----1--
G----2--
D----2--
A----0--
E-------
