NOTES:

In the tablature, I have tried to use spacing to represent the rhythm.
However, as always, your best bet is to listen closely to the
recording, especially since the ostinato soloing varies from verse to
verse.  Don't pay too much attention to my x's and when to slide, when
not to slide, etc., those are just my personal mannerisms when playing
the song.  At first, I was going to transcribe the solo, but it is
kind of... how do we put it... messy.  It's entirely based on E
pentatonic minor, though, and it would be no sweat for you to find
your own version of his solo.

As always, comments, questions, and gratitudes :) are welcome by
Bye!
