play this part 4 times - joe uses some tremelo effect on a
very clean tone with chorus and some slap back delay.

Ok this part is really cool,
Joe uses like stereo pan and delay with staccato rhythm to
Give it that 'oriental' feeling. PLAY WITH ATTITUDE and
Even if u don't have delay it will u can still make it sound
Pretty cool. 
(Tip: pick the low e notes if u don't have delay - listen to song)

This is kind of the interlude to the chorus below,

Ok that's the lead part, harmonized an octave above!
With synthesizer

Ok the above part is played a few times with slight variations at
The same time as "the chorus", I'm pretty sure Joe saturates
The tone with some wah.
 
FILL
                  ~~

play this with a whammy bar to get the notes...
listen and you will hear it
 
ok then its just a simple solo and some repetition of the above. I really
think satch has slowed down since the extremist (sigh)
oh well at least it makes it easier for us guys to work it out right?
enjoy.
