SOLO the wah here this is not how u play it. I have the book n even that is wrong as i have seen kirk play it live a million times

You put this
e23b-23b-23b--24b-24b-24b

However you catch two harmonics both around the third fret of the G string. one in the middle and one just slightly behind that.
so
G---<3>- then use the tremolo and then just back about 3mm on the fret do it again.
