I tried to get the spacing as close to the book as possible.  If I
could not fit the whole figure across the width of the page, I 
continued it on the next line indented.

Key:

h = hammer
BF = bend full
BFR = bend full and release
BH = bend half
P.M. = palm mute
/\/\/ = vibrato
% = repeat previous

After which slide each note on the G string (3rd from the bottom) down two frets (i.e. 10--8h9----8h9) for a while and then move it back up two frets and so on. I think that is about it. I am not going to get into the really fast part at the end. It's about 4 1/2 pages long and will take more time then I have available. If I messed something up email me directly so I can fix it and re-send it. If you want the solo or the fast part it would probably make more sense just to go out and buy the book then to ask for it.
