solo (w/wah, delay)

*************************

Note:  Adam is patched into his synth for this solo, so that interesting
       tone is generated somehow by his synth, (all I saw was this roady
       run out on stage before the song started and change a patch in the
       back of the synth's footswitch midi controller). Then, when Adam
       wasn't muting his strings he would get almost instant feedback from
       his guitar. It was similar to hooking up several distortion pedals
       in a row into a high volume amp... I will not speculate as to how
       his setup was changed. All I know is that Adam didn't do any pick
       scrapes to get those sounds...

       However, for those of us without an intimate knowledge of Adam's
       setup and access to a Virus synth, I have tabbed it out so the
       rest of us can play it.)

Haven't tried it yet, but looks correct. By far, best tab for Triad I've found. Thanks!

For the section that follows the solo at 2:54, I'm only counting 5x through instead of 6.
