The part marked '*' is to be played as a funky rhythm (listen to record).

Then repeat Main Melody.

Then start feeding back just on all the open notes using the whammy.
Finally hit all open strings and do a severe whammy dive.

I'm not gonna write out the rest because it would be a bit hard to do
in this tab. Check out the Stevie Ray Vaughan live video because he does this
section almost note-for-note. Anyway it is played over the bass vamp of...

|-----------------------------|
|-----------------------------|
|-7--5--5---7--5--5--7--5--5--| etc
|-----7---------7--------7----|

At the end the Main melody re-appears again.

Hope there is eneough here to keep people happy. I might if I have time write
down the feedback stuff, but really its pretty pointless. Learn it off the
record.
