Interlude/Solo (another guitar enters to play the lead)

*there are two guitars playing lead here, one with really low fuzzy distortion, the
other a lighter distortion with low tone, but i can't distingiush the fuzzy solo enough
to do the whole thing since the mix is so low, so i'm going to add in whatever licks i
can hear from the quieter solo
