Between the riffs (=breaks) Sheehan plays licks that will also vary through the song


First Verse

1st Break: -
2nd Break:
 --9--999-999-|
 -------------|
 -------------|

3rd Break: -
4th Break: -



Second verse:

1st Break:
 --------------|
 --------------|
 ----77777-----|
 --------------|

2nd Break: Some kind of sliding or something

3rd Break:
 ---9t<20>t<19>t<18>t<17>t<16>...t<11>t<10>t<11>t<12>...t<20>--|
 --------------------------------------------------------------|
 --------------------------------------------------------------|
 --------------------------------------------------------------|

Sheehan does this in lots of his solos. It's not important to hit
the exact fret, but there has to be a harmonic sound


4th Break:
