Solo

Guitar 1 
With distortion and reverb.
This solo is (rationally!) by no means 100% correct, however it's a starting
point i guess for someone. When there are speech marks (") above a part, that
means it's right, when there's a hash symbol (#) it means it's a cheap escape!
The percentage symbol (%) means fairly sure.

    %    "  "    "     "       "    "   "   "  #  #  #  #  # # # #  %  %  %  %   "   "
