Lee: A lot of notes have delay and trem bar effects on them, so experiment.

At 1:53 Lee turns on a phaser, then at 2:07 plays:
D---19---17---19--(bend up!!!)-----|C---//--------//-------------------|G---//--------//-------------------|C----------------------------------|G----------------------------------|G----------------------------------|
Trem pick the 19's and play the 17 briefly, then bend the second 19 up. Lee plays this a few times, then dissolves into total noise. Use lots of feedback, delay, phaser, and wild trem bar effects. Then, when it gets quiet:
2:37 **** 2:47 2:51 2:57D------------------- ------------------------------------------------|C------------------- ------------------------------------------------|G------------------- ------------------------------------------------|C-----------7---10-- ---7\10-----7\5\7\10----------*7*(harmonic)-----|G--4---7------------ ------------------------7--5--------------------|G--4---7------------ ------------------------------------------------|
Notes aren't picked, just fretted and sustained. Where the **** Lee "plays" some hand slides.
