Verse 2   (verse-riff twice...what else?)

Pre-chorus

Chorus (end chorus with:)

-------------

-9-----5-----
-9--9--5--5--
-7--9--3--5--
----7-----3--
Solo Rythm - Guitar I or II

 E5VII - 2
 B5 - 4  strum
 A5 - 4  strum
 B5 - 4  strum
 A5 - 2  strum
 G5 - 1
 A5 - 1
 F#5 - 4
 G5 - 2
 E5 - 1
 F#5 - 1
 G5 - 2
 E5 - 2
 A5 - 2
 F#5 - 2

(Numbers after the chord indicates the amount of bars the chord durates.
One bar is four beats. I.e. E5 - 2 mean play an E5-chord (power of course)
and maintain it for eight beats. Simple as hell.)  Solo     (pick really fast up to I)                      I

-------------------------------------------------------------

Actual Solo:   (Well I'd say it's more of a high pitch guitar version
                of Rob's vocals.)

-11-12-11----11----------------------------------
----------14-------12---11-12-14-11-12p11p9------
----------------14-------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------
Repeat this once but with the pull-off-trio twice  (-12p11p9-12p11p9-)


(One note every 2nd beat)                              more to the right --

---------------------------------------------------------------------------13-------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Maintain last note until singing stops.


Rythm Guitar (K.K. I think) plays plays Riff 2 four times and lead guitar
joins on 2nd time (drums 'n bass enters 3rd time). When this done end with
a long-maintained B5 power chord and the tempo drops to guess what.)

Spoken part: Play intro riff eight times.

After spoken part: Riff 1  (Tempo rise of course)

Then comes Pre-Chorus riff TWICE

And finally: Chorus riff many times before fading away.

only really tried the solo but all sounds good apart from the end of the solo into, i find it matches the song better if the last 3 notes played are 14s rather than 13.
