 This is my favourite song on his new album. I couldnt tab the solo because it is extremely
fast. There are 3 guitars on this song: Joe Satriani lead, rhythm harmonics, and acoustic.

Rhythm goes like this           then like this          then this
for about 32 times:              8 times:               8 times:
(rhythm 1)                      (rhythm 2)              (rhythm 3)
[---------<12>------]           [-------<7>-----]       [-------<5>-----]
[-----<12>----<12>--]           [----<7>---<7>--]       [----<5>---<5>--]
[-<12>--------------]           [-<7>-----------]       [-<5>-----------]
[-------------------]           [---------------]       [---------------]
[-------------------]           [---------------]       [---------------]
[-------------------]           [---------------]       [---------------]

                     *:  Im not sure of those two bars. You can bearly hear the 
                          8 and 10's. And its all mixed up. ;)


Then comes the solo...    but thats all for now.(sorry!)
