I indicated rhythm where it seemed necessary.
When a rhythm mark has no note under it, it is a tie or a rest.

Also, this song has a lot of repetition, so i marked off four sections with asterisks 
where they start and stop. when these parts are repeated i will just say what part to play.

In the first part of the solo, you should carefully hear the recording to get the right
feeling, it`s more important than the notes I wrote. Some of them are really hard to hear
as John phrases in a very irregular manner, and only a couple of notes are picked,  
so get ready to use light-speed hammers and pulls.
Second part is a collection of "how the hell can tou play that fast?" licks that sould
make you have fun for long. Thank you, John.  

Now I am working in tabbing the complete song, so any correction, comment, or 
whatever will be welcome.

May the Force be with you (you will need it...!)
