             3X, then
G|-------------|-------|
D|-------4444\-|-------|
A|-5-3-5-------|-5-3-5-|
E|-------------|-------|

Now, after that huge break, there's a whole new part to the song...you do
this really long part twice, starting below.

                                      4X
G|-------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------2-|
A|---------------------2-2-2-2-2-5-2---|
E|-2-2-2-2-2-5-5-5-5-5-----------------|


G|-------------------------------------|

E|-2-2-2-2-2-5-5-5-5-5-----------------|

G|----------------------------------------|

E|-2-2-2-2-2-5-5-5-5-5-----------------|---|

G|----------------|---|-------------|-------------|
D|------------2---|-%-|-------3\-2\-|-4-2---------|
A|-44444444-5---5-|---|-4\-5\-------|-----4-3-2---|
E|----------------|---|-------------|-----------5-|

(That is the end of the big part you do twice-----/ )


Now do below, which is basically Main Bass Fig. 4X, with a little fill
on the 4th time.

G|---------------------------------|---|---|-----------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|-%-|-%-|-----------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|---|---|-----------------22222-------|
E|-2-2p0-0-2-2p0-0-2-2p0-0-5-7-7p5-|---|---|-2-2p0-0-2-2p0-0-------0-0-0-|


Now do Main Bass Fig. 8X, which is part of the beginning of the guitar
solo; the rest of the guitar solo is below.


G|-------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------2---|
A|---------------------2-2-2-2-2-5---5-|
E|-2-2-2-2-2-5-5-5-5-5-----------------|

G|----------------------------------------|

A|---------------------2-2-2-2-2----------|

A|---------------------2-2-2-2-2-5---5-|---|
E|-2-2-2-2-2-5-5-5-5-5-----------------|---|

D|------------2---|-%-|-------2\-3\-|-4-2---------|
A|-44444444-5---5-|---|-4\-5\-------|-----4-3-2---|
E|----------------|---|-------------|-----------5-|


Now, right when guitar solo stops and you're done with the above, go
back to Main Bass Fig. 4X


After that, do below lick, slowly and loudly.

G|-------------------------|---|-----------------------------|
D|-------------------------|-%-|-----------------------------|
A|-------------------------|---|-----------------------------|
E|-2-2---2-2---2-2---2-0-0-|---|-2-2---2-2---2-2---2-2---2-2-|

Do this slowly also, but fade out.

2.THE SMALL HOURS

/--------------------------------------Verse------------------------------------------------\

            Bass Part 1                                  where
   /-----------------------------\                  /-fill goes-\ /--Part 1\

G|-o----------------5---------------|--------------5-------7---7h8p7--o-|
D|----0-0-0---5-7-----7-5-7--5-3----|--0-0-0---5-7----7-5---------------|

After these, there's a break and then a speeded up riff which serves as a guitar solo��.

                4 times,  then
F|----------------|-------|
C|----------------|-------|
G|----------------|-------|
D|--0-----1---2-1-|-(0)---|

      (this is the speeded up riff)
F|------------------------------|--------------------------------|

D|--0-000-000-000-000-006-0-008-|--0-000-000-000-000-006-0-0032--|

Play the above speed riff again and again until immediately after solo stops, then


F|-------------------------------|
C|-------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------|
D|--0-000-000-000-000-006-0-008--|

F|---------------------------------|
C|---------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|
D|--0-000-000-000-000-0012--0-012--|

Then back to the verse, chorus and then closing riff, which is directly below:

              3 times,   then
F|--------------------|---------------------------|
C|--------------------|---------------------------|
G|--------------------|----------------------1----|
D|--0----0-1-2---2-1--|--0----0-1-2---2-1------0--|

G|--4h6-------4-------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------5---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-1-1-1-1----|

(on the last fill, 6, pluck the hammer-on's really strong, then slow down,
 then on the rapidly declining low notes, go pretty fast.)

Another riff in there is this, the main one....

G|----------------------------|
D|------------------------1---|
A|----------------------1---3-|
E|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3----3-------|

The last riff is this, used in the chorus,
"green hell, green hell" part.

G|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|
E|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|


G|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|

After one of the chorus's (either the 1st or 2nd time,
I'm not sure), there is a little fill that goes
something like the little riff below.
