Solo Section II: Claudio Solo: I am not going to attempt to put what he's doing into tab form. Really, you cannot. Claudio has a bunch of effects going and he is essentially just picking muted strings combined with some open notes, actual notes, and harmonics. If you want to get a feel for what he's doing, watch some of the live videos linked in this tab. Just do whatever random stuff comes to mind essentially. Travis Pre-Chorus I Riff: x 4
