|[**]  Solos are incomplete/not updated.  I have not yet modified|
|the original solos done by Jarle, Alex Skolnick plays them a    |
|little different on FSSD.  I think I may do more of a follow up |
|to make them more complete/updated.  This pertains to both solos|
|in this song.                                                   |
