On repeat don't palm mute the last compass and let it ring. 
And you must also combine this with intro 3.

  Play Again riffs 1, 2 and 3.

  And now play riff one again, however this time play the 
hammer-ons part twice one normal and the other one palm-muted.
Then continue normaly to the second part of riff 1.

Riff 4 played during the verses  (repeat as necessary)

Riff 4 is played as the outro. Repeat until song ends.
