So that's it. The guitar solo has a second guitar playing a harmony in a few parts. I'll the second guitar out later. The solo is based on a C# natural minor scale (C# D E F# A B C#) so if you want to figure it out on your own go right ahead. If you have any questions, comments, or suggenstions please send me a PM or email me at vanguard456@msn.com.
