1ST SOLO 
Kerry King
RYTHYM:  variation on Verse Riff played 1 step (2 frets) higher; no
1st and 2nd ending w/ power chords - instead continue riff for a 4th measure.

LEAD:

Note: there are 2 versions of this solo, the album one and the one Kerry played for the clip. 
This is the clip version, which in my opinion kicks the **** outta the album one


2ND SOLO (cool!!!)
Jeff Hanneman 
RYTHYM: Same as Chorus
This solo is pretty easy ? its mostly tap picking. The only problem you might have 
is the speed with some of the ?interlude? parts between tap picking bits.
LEAD:
