                This is the first track from Joe's new album... fairly simple really,
unless you want to play the solo note for note.   Use a load of
distortion, give the EQ a bit of a scooped out look, and have a single
echo following a crotchet behind.

Here we go...

  natural harmonics............|
  Riff A                     end 
  
e--12----7-------5--12-------5------|----------------------------------
B---12----7-----5----12-----5-------|----------------------------------
G----12----7---5------12---5--------|----------------------------------
D-------------5-----------5---------|----------------------------------
A-----------------------------------|----------------------------------
E-----------------------------------|----------------------------------

  Repeat Riff A a few times (four if I remember rightly), then...

  Riff B

e------------------------------------------------|--------------------

D--9--9---------7-x-x-9-x-x-9-------9p7------9---|--------------------

                                 end Riff B

E-------------|----------------------------|---------------------------

Don't stop!   Straight into...
  Riff C                                          end Riff C
    .5                              .5
e-----------------------------------------------------------------|--
B--7br-7---------------------------7br-7--------------------------|--
G---------10p9p7-------------------------10p9p7-------------------|--
D----------------9-9-----9-7-9------------------7-7---9-7-9-------|--
A------------------------------7-7---------------------------7-7--|--
E-----------------------------------------------------------------|--

Repeat Riff C, then Riff A repeats but one octave up...


e------------------------------10-10-10-------------------------
B-------------10-x-x-12-x-x-12----------12p10-------------------
G--9-9-12-x-x---------------------------------12-9-9~~~---------
D---------------------------------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------------



e------------------------------|
B---------10-x-x-12-x-x--------|
G--12-x-x---------------9\7-7--|
D------------------------------|
A------------------------------|
E------------------------------|

The next two bars follow the same pattern, then Joe blows us away with
his musical inventiveness (sarcasm, sorry; I couldn't compose it) by 
repeating Riff C one octave up, which I play as...

    .5                                
e--14br-14--------------------------------------------------------|--
B-----------18p17p15----------------------------------------------|--
G--------------------16-16----14h16-------------------------------|--
D-----------------------------------14-14-------------------------|--
A-----------------------------------------------------------------|--
E-----------------------------------------------------------------|--


    .5                                
e--14br-14--------------------------------------------------------|--
B-----------18p17p15----------------------------------------------|--
G--------------------14-14----14h16-------------------------------|--
D-----------------------------------14-14-------------------------|--
A-----------------------------------------------------------------|--
E-----------------------------------------------------------------|--

I think he repeats this Riff one more time, then hits an E barre chord
for about four bars or so, it's either x799xx or x799(10)x I can't 
decide at the moment.   Then (cool bit coming!)...

  Riff D

e--12--12-10--10-12--7--7---/17--17-15--15-14--12--10--12--------|--
B----------------------------------------------------------------|--
G---9---9--7---7--9--4--4---/14--14-12--12-11---9---7---9--------|--
D----------------------------------------------------------------|--
A----------------------------------------------------------------|--
E----------------------------------------------------------------|--


                                                  end Riff D

e--12--12-10--10-12--7--7----3--3-5--5-7--5----------------------|--
B---------------------------------------------3-5/7-7\5----------|--
G---9---9--7---7--9--4--4----0--0-2--2-4--2----------------------|--
D---------------------------------------------0-2/4-4\2----------|--
A----------------------------------------------------------------|--
E----------------------------------------------------------------|--

This bit repeats in a similar way (the different bit is where he goes up
for the high A - the second time it doesn't go down below E at 12th
fret, but heads back up again).
Then Riff A reappears.
Add solo here -->
At the end of the solo, something akin to this happens:

  natural harmonics.......|
e--12----7---7--5--4--3.2-----------|
B--12----7---7--5--4--3.2-----------|
G--12----7---7--5--4--3.2-----------|
D-----------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------|

Then it's back to Riff B, off to Riff D, which this time Joe rounds
off with an ascending scale of those octave things, with some fast
strumming at the end; play some more natural harmonics (I think!) only
descending this time, then out to Riff A and a huge E chord at the end!
Phew!
