  Sorry, no solo yet, but soon.

  Everything should be fairly obvious.  When I have more time I'll tab
  some more stuff- the complete Bastille Day with some of the solo, the
  Natural Science solo, Entre Nous, complete The Trees, Closer To The
  Heart, Freewill,  Show Don't Tell, Working Man, 2112, maybe more too :)
