                EASTER (solo) by Marillion (an interpretation)

Here's the way I play it on my six-string, standard tuning, no capo.
Lots of bends, vibrato, and harmonics - fierce emotion.  Arguably
Steve's most powerful solo (it's my favorite anyway).

~ - vibrato (finger or whammy -whatever fits)
p - pull off
h - hammer on
r - release bend
s - slide    /s - slide from infinity
b(n) - bend to pitch of fret (n)

Guitar Solo - beginning at about 2:29

Could somebody PLEASE decode the 'mystery' lick at 3:41?  It sounds
like sweep picking.  I've tried listening at half speed, but I just
can't figure it out. This has eluded me for years...

Nebraska?

P.S.  Please permit me to include the following response that I received
after I first
       posted this tab...

This is what I play (well, try to play, and fail!).  It's not quite
right but it's a start...  Maybe someone else can improve on it...

(You can see it on the Easter video, on the 6 of 1... compilation.)

By the way, I think Steve starts the solo on the 7th fret of the top E
string and works up from there.  I'm sure you've got the notes right,
but it might make a difference to the tone.  Also, at the end, it
sounds to me like he somehow takes that final note up an octave as it
fades.  I can only guess he uses a harmonic...

(I play:)
         (touch for harmonic)
(top E)  --12---10---5------3-------(15)---

... but then again it sounds like it happens too gradually to be a
harmonic like that.  Any ideas?
