Okay. This next riff has to be done very presise.  I play
it with many fast hammer-ons.  (this helps achieve the the
weird sound)  I think this is the correct way, but if anyone
else can do better, try. I know it seems weird at first, but
just try it. You'll get the feel.

Now on to the solo.  It is based around some kind of a movable pentatonic
scale.  Most of this is right, but there are a few mistakes I think.
There are many overdubbs and some of it is hard to hear, but most all
is correct. The first solo starts just after fig 4.

hb = halfbend      vib. = vibrato            fbr = fullbend release
fb = fullbend      grad = gradual bend
/ \= slides        hbr = halbend release

Okay.  There is another bar or two, but I can't get it right now.  Mostly
pentatonic scales are used, this may help ya out.
This is mainly what I came up with.  It works pretty well for me.  If
you have any questions, comments, corrections, or just want to talk.
E-mail me.  I know some of this is probably wrong.  So don't get too
mad if it is.  Just send me the correction.  -Later-
