[Solo]

This is where the full effect of the extra strings on John's 11-string comes in. 
It's really hard to mimic on a 6, but you can try. This is how you can play it 
to make it sound relatively the same, but it requires some crazy fingering, so 
you can just play it like the first section here and improvise with bends and slides.
