Tuning: All guitars are Drop-D:
D A D G B E (low to high)

This is the official tab for Bat Country. This is the whole solo with all guitars 
it. Good luck on playing it.
This is my second tab on this site. Make sure to check out my "Seize the Day" solo tab later.

Legend:

b= bend
[ ]= what note that bend should sound like
...= palm muted
/\= slides
h= hammer-on
p= pull-off
ah= pinch harmonic
w= wammy bar
~= ring/ vibrato
x= muted string

*The +++++++ is just to divide up the sections.

Bend the 5th fret up a full step bend and bring it back down, and bend it up again, only
this time you bend it up a 1 1/2 step bend, and you don't pick it. Pick the 5th fret on
the B string, but bend it a 1/2 step. Then do the same thing on the G string, but you're
not picking the 5 in the ( )s. Listen to the song to hear this part.

On this part, you're just bending the 18th fret on the B string up and down, but
it's a 1 1/2 step bend. If you can't get that bend, then you can try bending it only
half step.
