Verse Intro
Dave plays it by gently touching the strings to allow the harmonics to sound 
and slowly sliding up to the 12th fret while gallopping with the right hand.
When vocals start he plays E5's like Adrian.

It's impossible to be 100% accurate tabbing a solo like this (so I
didn't, I edited somebody elses) so concentrate on isolating the 
individual phrases and how they link together.

Dave's Solo:
  (see)      (see)      (see)

|----------------------------------------------------------------14------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

                 The open B is hardly heard as the high notes should be
                 hammered very quickly.

|--14/16------------------------------------------------------15-------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

                Concentrate on strumming 16th notes on the
                open E string and quickly dart in and out with
                the high notes.

Hold the bends on the 3rd string to get the unison bend sound.
