  this is a cut but more fluent version of the first solo. The number of 
  notes I wrote down might not be accurate, but just listen to the music.
  play this 2 times, then what follows is the Solo from above again: 

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|8--8--8-8-8-11-8-8-9-8-8-8-8-4-4-4-4-4-4/8-8-8-8-6-6-6--------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------6-6-6-6-8-8-8-8h9-8|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------*--4/6-6/8-8--(repeat 3 times, then stop there ->*)---|
D|-1-1-1-1-2-2-2-1-1-1------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

[Outro]
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-1/13----13\11----11\9----9/13----11----9~--------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
