-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Ffcrazydude
Email:Ffcrazy_dude@hotmail.com

Tuning: E A D G B e

Please be aware that the solo is NOT complete as it uses the whammy bar and mine snapped
while i was writing the tab for this song (only guitar :( ). When i have a new guitar
ths one is finsihed i will work out the rest of the song, but until then this is what 
have.

It is the most accurate tab you can find on ultimate-guitar.com i think and is  in my
at least 95% perfect :) i hope its beneficial to people.

Solo Part 2:

Important note:

This requires heavy use of the whammy bar, so make sure you have one! Whammy bar notes
be noted with stars (*) around the section that they appear in for example *15*--*17*. If
are required to change the note while the whammy bar is still down then it will be noted 
this *15--17*, this means you keep the whammy bar down but change the note.
you understand this :) )

Oh and a bend is b, half bend is hb.
Like wise a b~ is a bend and vibrato at the top of the bend.

I'm pretty sure one of them plays the intro an Octave lower to harmonize.
