At the end of the 4th time: “Ah” On the 7th time, the lyrics come in: “My mother was a witch, She was burned alive, Thankless little bitch, For the tears I cried, Take her down now, Don’t want to see her face, Blistered & Burnt, Can’t hide my disgrace.”

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I’ve written two ways to play this part of the solo. The 1st one is the right way to play it but it is also the hardest. For right-handed (vise-versa for leftys!), this is the technique you should use unless you have freakishly hands or long fingers: You must use your left hand to finger-tap the 5th & 8th frets for the 1st line (same for 9th & 6th & then 10th & 7th frets in the next few lines). Then use your right hand to finger-tap the 12th fret (same goes for 13th & 14th in the few lines). This may cause you to drop your pick so it’s recommended that you use any finger asides your index & your thumb & your baby finger (unless you have a freakishly strong baby finger).
