The little interlude with a VERY SPECIAL EFFECT (!) is very difficult to
transcribe.  When I play this part, I switch my WAH on and I play an E5
power chord.  I follow the rythm with my wah pedal.

The last bar of the 3rd verse have a slight variation of the main riff.
(That's when UDO sings : "We are born to die")

|-5--5--4--3--2-----X-X-X-X---|
|-5--5--4--3--2-----X-X-X-X---| After that, go directly to the chorus
|-3--3--2--1--0-----X-X-X-X---| Don't pass by the prechorus (and don't collect
                                200$ !!! 8-> )

Here's the riffs for the solo part (beginning at the end of the 2nd chorus)

Play this riff 2 times then play the same thing 2 times again but play
it on the 6th (E) and 5th (A) strings instead of the 5th and 4th.
After that replay 2 times this riff on the 5th and 4th strings (like the 2
first time!)

The solo over this riff :       _______________________ ___________________

I'm not able to transcribe the two other bars but I know that this is a run
in E aeolien ( E F# G A B C D ).
                              ______________________________________________

After that play the riff at the beginning of the solo part twice :

                                  where they are!)
                             NH = Natural harmonic
