Bass parts

it is basically the same riff with a slight variation.

************************************************************************* there is an outro solo at the end of the song somewhere around 4 minutes into the song (give or take 20 seconds), i don't have time to figure it out, however, if you would like to write you own little solo for it (like i have) the below notes will work just really good for a solo. If you do it right, it could sound really great. The notes are in no particular order, just from high to low, work with it see what happens.
