Thats the main song covered , this repeats a few times and then when come to the outro section . You can take your slide of now and change to some rhythm playing and then it's the solo. oh yes this is where there is some slight phasing , but also it's switched off for the main body of the solo and gradually builds up into the end section.

The Guitar Solo --------------- Now the solo comes in , you guitar should not be totally screaming for this but should have plenty of gain giving a good impact the solo is very energetic, i think that you should use only as much distortion as you like, in the 2nd and 3rd sections notice how the feel and timing slightly changed , I am only going to cover the first part.

As you can see it uses the same riff repeating a lot it seems daft writing it all out like I just did so i'll show you the riff and how many times it repeats
E-----15--------------15-------------15-------------15-------------15-------B--18----18p15-----18----18p15----18----18p15----18----18p15----18----18p15-G---------------------------------------------------------------------------D---------------------------------------------------------------------------A---------------------------------------------------------------------------E---------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is repeated 3 times and on the 4 time play this:
E-----15--------------15--------15-----------------------B--18----18p15-----18----18p15-----18p15----18b20b18p15--G--------------------------------------------------------D--------------------------------------------------------A--------------------------------------------------------E--------------------------------------------------------

The next riff which is repeated twice is :
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------B---18p15-------15----18p15-------15----18p15-------15----18p15-------15--G---------17b19-------------17b19-------------17b19-------------17b19-----D-------------------------------------------------------------------------A-------------------------------------------------------------------------E-------------------------------------------------------------------------
and this follows:
