The little interlude with a VERY SPECIAL EFFECT (!) is very difficult to transcribe. When I play this part, I switch my WAH on and I play an E5 power chord. I follow the rythm with my wah pedal.
The last bar of the 3rd verse have a slight variation of the main riff.(That's when UDO sings : "We are born to die")|-----------------------------||-----------------------------||-----------------------------||-5--5--4--3--2-----X-X-X-X---||-5--5--4--3--2-----X-X-X-X---| After that, go directly to the chorus|-3--3--2--1--0-----X-X-X-X---| Don't pass by the prechorus (and don't collect 200$ !!! 8-> )
Here's the riffs for the solo part (beginning at the end of the 2nd chorus)
|----------------------------------|--------------------------------||----------------------------------|--------------------------------||----------------------------------|--------------------------------||---5\4---5\4---5\4---5\4-----4/5--|---5\4---5\4---5\4---4/5-4------||-0-3\2-0-3\2-0-3\2-0-3\2-0-0-2/3--|-0-3\2-0-3\2-0-3\2-0-2/3-2------||----------------------------------|--------------------------------| PM on low A________________| PM similar---------------------|
