Lee:

A lot of notes have delay and trem bar effects on them, so experiment.

  Bend furiously with trem bar

At 1:53 Lee turns on a phaser, then at 2:07 plays:

D---19---17---19--(bend up!!!)-----|
C---//--------//-------------------|
G---//--------//-------------------|
C----------------------------------|
G----------------------------------|
G----------------------------------|

Trem pick the 19's and play the 17 briefly, then bend the second 19 up.
Lee plays this a few times, then dissolves into total noise. Use lots
of feedback, delay, phaser, and wild trem bar effects.

Then, when it gets quiet:

 2:37               ****  2:47      2:51          2:57
D-------------------     ------------------------------------------------|

G--4---7------------     ------------------------7--5--------------------|
G--4---7------------     ------------------------------------------------|

Notes aren't picked, just fretted and sustained.
Where the **** Lee "plays" some hand slides.
