                              From the Album "The Scarecrow"

Tuning: Standard

This is my first tab that i figured out for myself.
The Solo uses a similar note cluster to the lead intro,
so you can have a shot at figuring out the intro from this too. 
It's fairly easy. 

Enjoy, and feel free to comment or correct anything

This riff is using the key of A# major I Think

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------3-4~--4-3-4-3h4p3p1--------------------------------------------|
G|--3----3-5----------------------3--------3/5-3-----------------------------|
D|-----3---------------------------------3-----------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

This second lick uses A# Major too, but at an octave higher.
Octaves aside, its exactly the same notes as the first riff,
except for the ending, which stoops into higher notes of the A# Major scale

e|-----------------10-11~--11-10-11-10h11p10p8------------13/15--13----------|
B|--/11-----11-13-------------------------------11----11---------------------|
G|-------10------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

And the whole solo ends on this riff, still in A# Major

e|---11-10-11-10h11p10-------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------11----------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

I've tried to put in as much theory as i can into the descriptions,
to give you an idea of how i figured this one out.

It's a great solo, and so easy to play, for something as epic-sounding

Thanks :)
