SOLO

this first note goes for a while, it bends down but if you don't have a whammy bar (like
you have to bend it loads then slowly straighten it after its been picked. btw this is
the video version (i think there different)

the fast (awesome) (hard) bit, basicly you just tap 8h11p8h11p8...with your left hand
your normal) and slide your pick downwards from about 19th to 12th fret at an increesing speed...
it goes something like this i play it slightly differently every time...

bend these massively...

i think this bit is slighly muted, and it speeds up as it gets higher...
the hammer on and pull offs are all optional, i prefere to tremolo pick it instead...

your not realy meant to hold this note but i think it's better if you do


OUTRO

very similar to the bigining, i think it does it twice before the guitar restarts...

i'm sorry, i don't know, my guitar's always swinging back and forth with different tunings (i don't think that's good for my strings) i think it was in standard when i figured most of this out,

anyway it's not in drop d, bon jovi arent that sort of band, but there was a cover of it in drop d
