Repeat main riff until completely fade out











Francis:

I'm not quite sure about how the mainriff is being played by Francis.
I had many possible solutions but I've finally written this one down.
But I'm talking about small details here, the base covers his playing.
For instance I'm not sure if he's playing the full A-chord. You can't 
really hear him playing the third (C#) and the (E) on some places,
but on other places you can.

Solo and overdubs:

On this spot the solo begins. I've written down the solo and overdubs
in one breath because I think they're on the same track.

Overdubs:

This motiv you'll find several times during the song. At the end of
the mainriff, during the hook (on the chords C and D, at the beginning
of verse 2 and 3) and during the repeat and fade out of the mainriff.

  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4  + +      1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + + 
E|------------------15---15b17-|slowly release to-15----|
B|-----------------------------|------------------------|
G|-----------------------------|------------------------|
D|-----------------------------|------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|------------------------|

After verse two you'll find respectively riff 2 (1x), mainriff (1x),
riff 2 (2x) and the mainriff (2x). At the end of the last mainriff
the same motiv has been overdubbed but now an octave lower:

  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +     1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + + 
E|---------------------------|------------------------|
B|------------------8---8b10-|slowly release to-8-----|
G|---------------------------|------------------------|
D|---------------------------|------------------------|
A|---------------------------|------------------------|
E|---------------------------|------------------------|


During the repeat and fade out the first motiv has been
alternated with:

  1 + + 2 + + 3  + +  4 + +  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + + 
E|------------15---14---15--|15b17-release to--15----|
B|--------------------------|------------------------|
G|--------------------------|------------------------|
D|--------------------------|------------------------|
A|--------------------------|------------------------|
E|--------------------------|------------------------|


And during the last riff
  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +    1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + + 
E|------------15---14---15--|17b19------r17----------|

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

The solo begins over the last two bars of the one-finger
riff. It begins with the second motiv discussed above.

  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +     1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +

The next three bars are difficult to copy as Francis takes liberty
in rhythm.
