A couple of points about the solo. For the octave part I think that Karl uses his whammy bar but only very slightly. However, I think it sounds OK without it. Also, the bar marked with an asterisk is practically inaudible on the CD but I think that its something close to what I've tabbed. You'll probably notice that the next bar is difficult to get to in time without a lot of excess string noise but unfortunately that's the problem with a solo with two guitarists playing different parts! If this part becomes too meddlesome or irritating I suggest that you just do a long finger slide down the thicker strings with some whammy bar for good measure. Solo: grad bend

This next bar is like a 'tapped trill' and is just very fast tapping (tap about 4 times per tabbed trill) with a single note as anchor.
