 get this far, you should be able to figure it out.)

Legend:

5h7 = hammer-on
^   = palm mute
(5) = artificial harmonic
5b7 = bend
12tr13 = trill
14\ = slide down
/14 = slide up

Alright, there you go.  The guitar solo is a guess at best, because it's really hard to hear every single individual note 
Petrucci plays.  He's playing lightning fast, so I just interpolated.  Also, I think this song is played on a 7-string guitar,
but the only note Petrucci plays on the low B is a 5th fret E artificial harmonic.  I've written those notes in as (1)'s on the
E string.  If you're playing with enough distortion and you hit the harmonic just write, it sounds almost the same.  Enjoy!
