Thats the main song covered , this repeats a few times and then when
come to the outro section . You can take your slide of now and
change to some rhythm playing and then it's the solo.
oh yes this is where there is some slight phasing , but also it's
switched off for the main body of the solo and gradually builds up
into the end section.

The Guitar Solo
---------------

        Now the solo comes in , you guitar should not be totally
screaming for this but should have plenty of gain giving a good impact
the solo is very energetic, i think that you should use only as much 
distortion as you like, in the 2nd and 3rd sections notice
how the feel and timing slightly changed , I am only going to cover
the first part.

 As you can see it uses the same riff repeating a lot it seems daft
 writing it all out like I just did so i'll show you the riff
 and how many times it repeats



E-----15--------------15-------------15-------------15-------------15-------
