Hey guys. just wanted to say thanks for checking out my tab
and that i have a note on the solo. MY version of the solo
as you can tell is completely what i heard. absolutely not
correct but it was an attempt because i could not stand the
"incoherent doodling" but i have found an extremely accurate
tab for it. CHECK OUT THE SOLO VER2 BY MAITNIN IT IS EXCELENT.
thanks =]

Ill take you through this step by step because it
gets pretty confusing.
comment or email with questions.
Three guitars play. i seperated the parts

This part of the solo is a very fast tapping round.
it is very hard to follow because of both guitars playing on top
of each other. this part is going to be very confusing but try to
follow along. i would use your sense of judgment on this part of the
tab because your style of playing it may be different from what i tabbed
out. it will come out smoother. THIS IS NOT 'INCOHERENT DOODLING'
