CHORUS:

E5                    G5                         F#5
close your eyes, look deep in your soul, step outside your mind

                          G5 F#5
     and let yourself go 

E5           F5         G#5      G5 F#5
   as you go insane, go insane


1ST SOLO RYTHYM:  variation on Verse Riff played 1 step (2 frets) higher; no
1st and 2nd ending w/ power chords - instead continue riff for a 4th measure.

2ND SOLO RYTHYM:  Chorus chords.



King's solo is based on G# locrian if I remember right.

Hanneman's begin with an arpeggiated Am7, played up an octave each time,
beginning with A (6 stg) 5 fr.  The tapping bit is 12-8-5-8-5 13-8-5-8-5, on
the 2nd string, then again on the 1st string.  The final bit is 10-5-7-8 on
the 1st string, then up to the 22nd fret, a half-step at a time.
