  Lotsa solo stuff. Damned fast, but not hard. Usual pentatonic minor soloing.

People, this is the end of the solo. I think it's the kewlest sounding part, so thats all I bothered to figure out. Listen to the CD, and this is exactly how it sounds. I'd say this is the last 30 seconds of the solo.  Right when James is going into the routine chorus progression.

If you're like me, and don't have 24 frets on your guitar, then you'll have
an awful lot of hard bending to do from the 21st. I play a Stratocaster. I have no idea what Kirk plays this with.

Bridge
 (Half Time Feel)

 (This is the "Die, by my hands..." part)

 Each chord is a half note, except the E which is 4 quarter notes using only
the bottom string. The progression is like this:

 E5 E E E E F5 D5 E5 E E E E G5 F5 (x3)

 Then it's Ryth Fig 3 for 6 bars. On the sixth bar, another gutair plays the
following:

  |-----------|
  |-----------|  Go back to where the singing originally started. Play it
  |-[~3~]-7\--|  through with the third verse, and when you hit the @ sign,
  |-2-3-5-7\\-|  go to this next part.
  |-2-3-5-5\\-|
  |-0-1-3---\-|

  (Following Can be played by 2 guitars, one high, one low, but one can do it)

             ~~~~~~~~~       ~~~~~~~~~~~     ~~~~~~~~~         ~~~~~

           Something for 4 bars... Probably one of the above riffs.

  Ryth Fig 2 (twice) Then it's free time.

  Then it's 4 chords, with a slight retard:

  -----|-----|---|
  -----|-----|---|
  -*---|-----|---|
  -*---|-----|-2-|
  ---7-|-5-5-|-2-|
  ---5-|-3-2-|-0-|
              Trill

  Now, in the Exact same bar where the E5 Trill starts, this scale starts, with
 two guitars.

   |-------------|-------------|-14-15--14----|-------------|----------|----|
   |-------------|-------16-17-|--7--8---7-17-|-16----------|----------|----|

  And of course, it ends with 2 hard E5 chords, and a slide to nothing.



 % = Quarter Rest      O = Whole Note   / = Quarter Note    \ = Thirty-Second
 } = Full Rest         o = Half Note    | = Sixteenth
