There's a mini solo at like 10 seconds into the song. It's pretty hard to makeout thanks 
all the effects on his guitar, but I'll try my best to tab it so you get the idea. It's 
an Em penatonic run starting from the 15th fret on the second string, so just improvise.
If you don't know the scale, email me and i'll send it to you. =)

The verse is pretty much just muted strums and following the bass line using the Em 
and some hammer ons here and there.
The solo is also Em penatonic so just listen to the track and improvise. It's long but 
easy to figure out.
