(organ & violin do their thing then guitar solo)

If you want to jam to this the chord progression is:
Em Am G Bm G#m A# D# Am
So then you and your freinds can jam out to the Floyd

Two guitars, one isn't tabbed because it has very little signifigance
in this solo.

 W/Slide High Treble and slight Overdrive (Fuzz)

I HAD TO tab both guitars on this part, and they
are lined up with each other so it's easy to figure
out.

Last and best solo in the song.

Guitar 2 *BOTTOM* (High Treble and slight Overdrive (Fuzz) NO SLIDE)

Em Am G Bm G#m A# D# Am

DICLAIMER #2!!!!

It is kind of hard to distinguish both guitars in the real song so
just listen carefully and you'll be able to put both guitars together
to get the perfect sound. This tab needs to be carefully read. On the
"Climax" of the solo there is another guitar going up and down the
fretboard with a slide but it's pretty easy to do that.
