[Verse notes:  During the verses, one of the guitars is playing eighth notes
 on the upbeats of beats 2 and 3, this is done on the 13th frets of the high 
 E and B strings, i.e. the top two strings, listen for it on the album.
 The tabs after each line are the fills that are played after each verse.]

And now for the the solo:
[Note: Midway through the solo, a second guitar comes in with a harmony, but
 for the sake of simplicity and notation I have only written out the top part.
 The lower harmony notes are a major third lower, as far as I can tell.  Also,
 the chords that accompany the solo are  F-A-Bb-C in succession.]

(cool electric piano riff)
