Rythym Figure 3

Then repeat rythym figures 1,2,3, and then do this:

|-----|---------|
|-----|---------|repeat this once then do this:
|-3-3-|-5-5-8-5-|
|-1-1-|-3-3-6-3-|

Rythym Figure 4(Played over guitar solo)
|------------------------|
|------------------------|repeat this 3 times
|------------------------|
|-----10-10---------8----|
|-3-3--8--8--10-10--6-8--|
|-1-1---------8--8----6--|

I did  manage to figure out the end of the solo.
It is by far the best part of the song. Full of
slippery pentatonic minor leads and fast repeated licks.

|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------1(3)---6-6-5-6-6----------|
|----------------------------------------1------------------3-5-3-5-5|
|--------------------------------------3-----------------------------|
|---------------------5/8--------------------------------------------|

|--x-x-6--x-x-8--x-x-10--|
|--x-x-4--x-x-6--x-x--8--|

repeat Rythym Figure 1
then do this on distorted electric

Rythym Figure 5
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|-10-10-x-x-x-x--8-8-x-x-x-x--8--|
|-10-10-x-x-x-x--8-8-x-x-x-x--8-8|
|--8--8-x-x-x-x--6-6-x-x-x-x--6-8|
|-------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x----6|

this lick repeats through the end of the song but
after about 5 times they play this rideout solo
over it:
|-18(20)--20b21-20b21-20b21-20b220--|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|

Repeat Rythym Figure 5 through the fadeout

I didn't have a lot of time to figure out the long
solo in the middle of the song(plus I don't figure out fast lead
very well). If anyone figures it out, e-mail me at "Jry87@cs.com" ,
just take away the quotes.

Have Fun,
