Solo (Middle 8)

If you have a tremolo bar you can use that to bend down, rather than having to bend up first.
There are also some of Matt's classic weird effects on here, but this sounds okay.
This is the only part of the tab which might not be in time, 
so listen to the song to hear how it should roughly sound.

Verse

Chorus 

Intro X8 on different, more tinny setting, e.g. use treble pickup rather than rhythm.

Intro X8 normal

Chrous, but no palm muting or letting ring, constant struming.

Eh, why has this tab only recieved a 3 star rating from 4 votes? Intro, verse, chorus all spot on. Haven't tried this version of the solo yet but it looks ok to me too. Definately better than 3 stars!
