(listen to the song to figure out this part; there's
a triplet I didn't tab)


Now you can either play the melody again, or head to a solo in the
key of F.

Key Of F = F G A Bb C D E F 

You can find these notes all over the guitar. As long as you
play these notes, you can solo. You need to learn pentatonic
scales first, then more lateral/horizontal scales. 

Solo chords (mainly for two guitarists or a band; one plays chords
while the other solos over them)

   F7      Bb7 Bdim    F7         F7      Bb7        Bb7
| / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / |
  1 2 3 4   1 2 3 4   1 2 3 4   1 2 3 4   1 2 3 4   1 2 3 4

    F7      Amin7 D7    Gmin      C7     Amin7 D7  Gmin7 C7
| / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / |
  1 2 3 4   1 2 3 4   1 2 3 4   1 2 3 4   1 2 3 4   1 2 3 4

^The / don't mean slide here, they are count markers.
If there is one chord above the measure, it means that chord
is played 4 times or held the entire measure; if the measure
has two chords above it, then each chord receives half the
measure. 

Chords used:

F7 - xx3210
Bb7 - x13131
Bdim - xx2343
Amin7 - x02010
D7 - xx0212
Gmin - 355333
Gmin7 - 353333
C7 - x32310

You can use these, or find a chord chart for more bassy chords.
That's all.
