On the 7th time, the lyrics come in:
“My mother was a witch,
She was burned alive,
Thankless little bitch,
For the tears I cried,
Take her down now,
Don’t want to see her face,
Blistered & Burnt,
Can’t hide my disgrace.”

To break with my bread,

Help set you freeee.”

I’ve written two ways to play this part of the solo.

The 1st one is the right way to play it but it is also the hardest. For right-handed 
(vise-versa for leftys!), this is the technique you should use unless you have freakishly 
hands or long fingers:
You must use your left hand to finger-tap the 5th & 8th frets for the 1st line (same 
for 9th & 6th & then 10th & 7th frets in the next few lines).
Then use your right hand to finger-tap the 12th fret (same goes for 13th & 14th in the 
few lines).
This may cause you to drop your pick so it’s recommended that you use any finger asides 
your index & your thumb & your baby finger (unless you have a freakishly strong baby finger).

Very good tab, but you miss some of the solo, and there are many flaws. Also you miss the other pre-solo riff, played 4
times! :O Therefor I rate this tab 4. Pretty good! =)
