-Solo-

The solo to 'The Four Horsemen' is a bit intimidating, so I've 
stretched it out a bit to make it easier to look at...but, like
anything else in music, time and practice will always equal good 
results. Have fun with it, and if it gets too hard and fun starts 
to drain away, play some warmup stuff or some other music for a  
while, and come back to it. This solo is a really flashy one and
over-all is a great thing to learn. Have fun with it.
