Author's notes:

   As most will notice I am missing some of the sweep picking parts 
and a few of the small little over dubed parts, but over all I'd 
say this is a solid tab.  Honestly I think it's the best one when 
it comes to the Main Riff.  Just for reference i put the begining 
of each lyric under the tab.  The lyrics will not match up with the music 
you play like in an official tab book.  They are just there for reference.  
If you have any comments, correction or pieces that i'm missing 
please feel free to let me know. ESPECIALLY if its for the solo...god thats hard.
