Part 1 Lyrics:    Three fingers on a swollen hand beside a dented          garbage can a 
man staring
at something only he can see
I spotted him like night
sky plotted and star struck
sits at alone, eats at home
rafted in a sea of blackness
He rattles his cup just enough to call your bluff
you can't pretend you didn't see him
catch his smile in the rear view
out of the blue his guitar entered hard
with three fingers he plays
praise what he says might scare you

The tapping part was tough but basically i went chromatically downward on each string.

Outro: The little squeeky notes are taken up an octave on the pedal

Isn't the "tapping" part actually sweeping?

No, he's right, it's tapping. Rather, Buckethead's three finger nubbing. :D
