 All of the #s without the *s, are tremelo picked. That means tremelo pick all except 
the : 17 17 19 0 part,
 and the 24b[26] part. If you don't have a 24th fret than just bend the 21st fret a full 
and a half bend or
 for the real sound, bend the 22nd fret a two step bend. You have to tremelo pick each 
real fast.
