	Note: The very end of the above lead is pretty much Travis
	      sliding from the 7th fret to the open note as he's
	      tremolo picking.

Solo Section II:


Claudio Solo:
I am not going to attempt to put what he's doing into tab form.  Really, you cannot.
Claudio has a bunch of effects going and he is essentially just picking muted strings
combined with some open notes, actual notes, and harmonics.  If you want to get a feel
for what he's doing, watch some of the live videos linked in this tab.  Just do
whatever random stuff comes to mind essentially.
