Before we get to the solo,  I would like to map out the order of
this song.  This is the order the song should be.

 Riff  1    7x
 Riff  1A   1x
 Riff  1    3x
 Riff  1A   1x
 Riff  2    3x
 Riff  2A   1x
 Riff  3    2x
 Riff  2    3x
 Riff  2A   1x

I hope this clears up any confusion. Now on to the solo. The first
solo starts on Riff 3 the first time around. There are MANY bends
that I had trouble explaining. You will definitly have to listen
to the solo to get the feel. But for the most part of it, it's pretty
much right. Just remember, BENDING IS THE KEY TO THIS SOLO!

fb = fullbend     fbr = fullbend + release    hbr = halfbend +
hb = halfbend     H = hammer-on                     release
/ \ = slides      P = pull-off                vib. = vibrato

There's another bar left in the first solo but I can't figure
it out.  There's too much feedback or something. It's based
around an E pentatonic. Maybe someone else can figure it out.

Well, this is what I came up with.  I know it probably seems hard
to understand but if you e-mail me I will be  happy to clear up
any confusion. Also, if you have any corrections mail me at
for the most of it, it sounds great through a phaser.
