Here is how Satriani plays it...e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|----4h6-4h6-4h6-4h6--9--11---4h6-4h6-4h6-4h6--9--8-------------------------|D|----4h6-4h6-4h6-4h6--9--11---4h6-4h6-4h6-4h6--9--8-------------------------|A|----4---4---4---4----7--9----4---4---4---4----7--6-------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

But here is how I like to play it...e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|------------------------9h11-----------------------------------------------|D|----9h11-9h11-9h11-9h11-9h11--9h11-9h11-9h11-9h11--14--13------------------|A|----9h11-9h11-9h11-9h11-9-----9h11-9h11-9h11-9h11--14--13------------------|E|----9----9----9----9----------9----9----9----9-----12--11------------------|

They both pretty much sound the same, but I prefer the second one because you don't have to move your hand quite as much.
This is the part where the crowd mimics what Joe is playing...e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|-------9--11p9-------------------------------------------------------------|D|---11-----------11p9h11---------------------11----9------------------------|A|------------------------------------------------------11-9-----------------|E|------------------------------------------------------------12--9----------|

Now here is where it gets tricky. Joe heavily uses the whammy bar for the next two parts, and the third one is relatively difficult to explain with text, but I'll try me best. Here goes...
Depress the whammy bar slightly before hitting the note, then release it to its normal position. Then right after tighten it so the pitch goes higher, and then depress it once more.e|------17*--------------------------0**-------------------------------------|B|------17*--------------------------0**-------------------------------------|G|------17*--------------------------0**-------------------------------------|D|----------------------------or---------------------------------------------|A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------| *Natural harmonics **Pinch harmonics
This one you just slide up and down the G string. But there's a catch. When you slide up, you depress the whammy bar so that the note stays in the relatively same pitch. When you go down, you tighten so you can get the same effect.e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|----2//--14\\--2//--12\\--2//--7\\--0--------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
For this one, put your hand over all the strings at any fret so that the strings don't sound. Then turn your pick sideways as if for a pickslide, but instead rake across the strings in this order:e|-------\-----------/-----\-----------/-------------------------------------|B|--------\---------/-------\---------/--------------------------------------|G|---------\-------/---------\-------/---------------------------------------|D|----------\-----/-----------\-----/----------------------------------------|A|-----------\---/-------------\---/-----------------------------------------|E|------------\-/---------------\-/------------------------------------------|
Whew! The hard part is over! OK, with this one you shake the whammy bar a bit while you hit the notes...e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|----6-(6)-(6)-(6)--9-(9)-(9)-(9)--4-(4)-(4)-(4)--6-------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------| * Don't actually pick the notes in the brackets.
