ok here is the outro/solo. i am not sure if it is 100% correct but i am fairly sure
that it is close. this is also played mostly at super high speed, so tap most of the 
notes.

OK, here is where the crazy fast stuff happens. Again, combine 
tapping into the mix.

Do this next part at such an ultra high speed its not even funny. You will
have to tap extremely fast!

^NOTE: To bend an open note, bend behind the nut.

And thats all of Purple Haze Live! Voodoo Child is a very good cd by the way,
if you don't have it, I suggest you go buy it now! Have fun playing Purple Haze
Live! Hopefully the bass tab is to come soon also once my friend and I sit down to 
transcribe it, sounds easy though.
