            |
e:|---------|-------------|-----------------|---------------------|---------|
B:|---------|-------------|-----------------|---------------------|---------|
G:|-----10--|--12--------14-12~~---10-9~~---|---------------------|-----10--|
D:|---12----|------12~~---|----------------12-10~~------7h8h10~~--|---12----|
A:|---------|-------------|-----------------|----------8----------|---------|
E:|---------|-------------|-----------------|---------------------|---------|


e:|-------------|-----------------|-------|--------------|
B:|-------------|-----------------|-------|--------------|
G:|--12--------14-12~~---10-9~~---|-------|--------------|
D:|------12~~---|----------------12-10~~--|-----12*--14--|
A:|-------------|-----------------|-------|-12*----------|
E:|-------------|-----------------|-------|--------------|

      I think most of this next part is right...

e:|--13--12--10--8~--|--13-12-10--8~--5-5-3--1--|------|            |------|
B:|--15--13--10--8~--|--15-12-10--8~--6-6-5--3--5-3~~--|            5-6~~--|
G:|------------------|------------|-------------5-5~~--|            5-5----|
D:|------------------|------------|-------------|------|            |------|
A:|------------------|------------|-------------|------|            |------|
E:|------------------|------------|-------------|------|            |------|
									 |
      Now, play this again, but replace the last measure with
this_______|

      Then, back to the first part with this...

e:|---------|-------------|-----------------|-------------|-------------|
B:|---------|-------------|-----------------|-------------|-------------|
G:|-----10--|--12--------14-12~~---10-9~~---|--------12~~-|--17~~-------|
D:|---12----|------12~~---|----------------12-10~~--------|-------------|
A:|---------|-------------|-----------------|-------------|--15~~-----8-|
E:|---------|-------------|-----------------|-------------|---------10--|

e:|-----------|
B:|-----------|
G:|-----------|  Then, some fast D blues scale soloing...
D:|-----------|
A:|--10-------|
E:|------10~~-|

       ...Which leads into...

<<1st Solo>>

e:|-----------|---------------|---------------|----------|
B:|-----------|---------------|---------------|----------|
G:|----------10--------------10-14b17r14--10~-|-9b10r9~--|
D:|--10--12---|--10-10-12-12--|---------------|----------|
A:|-----------|---------------|---------------|----------|
E:|-----------|---------------|---------------|----------|


e:|---10-13p10~-10-10----10--|----------------------|--------------|---|
B:|-13-------------10h13-10--|----------------------|--13~~--15~~--|---|
G:|-------------------------12-12p10----------------|--12~~--12----|-?-|
D:|--------------------------|------12p10-----------|--------------|-?-|
A:|--------------------------|-----------12p10------|--------------|---|
E:|--------------------------|----------------13~~--|--------------|---|


       I know this next part is not right, but this is what I play, & I
think
 it sounds kinda like it so...


e:|-------|-------------|--------|--11~---11~--|
B:|-------|-------------|--------|--11~---11~--|
G:|-------|-------------|--------|--------10~--|
D:|--10~--|-13-12-10-8~-|--8-10--|-------------|
A:|---8~--|-11-10--8-6~-|--6--8--|-------------|
E:|-------|-------------|--------|-------------|


e:|-------|----------|---------|--11~---11~--|
B:|-------|----------|--7*-5*--|--11~---11~--|
G:|-------|----------|--7*-5*--|--------10~--|
D:|--10~--|-5-8-8-10-|--7*-5*--|-------------|
A:|---8~--|-3-6-6--8-|---------|-------------|
E:|-------|----------|---------|-------------|


      Then, this cool part...

e:|-------------------------|----------------------|      |----------|
B:|----------10------8------|----------------------|      |----------|
G:|--10-9-10---10-----10----|--10-9-10-7----9------|      |-----9-10-|
D:|-------------(10)---(10)-|-----------8----10----|      |--10------|____
A:|-------------------------|-----------(8)---(10)-|      |----------|   |
E:|-------------------------|----------------------|      |----------|   |
							           	|
      Keep playin this for a while, adding this variation when needed____|

      When the distorted 2nd guitar comes in, it plays these fills...

e:|------12-12-13~--12-13-12h13-------|    |----------------|  This fill
B:|--/13-----------------------12-----|    |----------------|  leads into
G:|------------------------------13~--|    |----------------|  this next
D:|-----------------------------------|    |---------7-5----|  riff...>>
A:|-----------------------------------|    |-------8--------|
E:|-----------------------------------|    |--6-10-------8--|


<>

e:|------------|-----------|-------|------------|    This goes on like this...
B:|--11~--10~--|--11-10--8-6-10~~--|--8/10-10~--|    Then, he hits that crazy
G:|--10~--10~--|--10-10-10-5--9~~--|--7/-9--9~--|    climb riff thing too...    
D:|------------|-----------|-------|------------|
A:|------------|-----------|-------|------------|
E:|------------|-----------|-------|------------|


      Now, it goes back to the beginning 8 measures (by now you probably
know
what goes where...)  Here's the second slow solo...

<<2nd Solo>>

e:|----------------------|---------------|------------------|--------------|
B:|----------------------|---------------|------------------|--------------|
G:|----------------10~~--|---12h14--12--10-------12h14-12--/9----7---------|
D:|-----10-12-12~~-------|-12-----12--12-|-10/14------------|-10---5----10-|
A:|--/12-----------------|---------------|------------------|--------------|
E:|----------------------|---------------|------------------|--------------|


e:|---------------|----------------|-----------|--------------|
B:|---------------|----------------|------13~--6/8\6~---------|
G:|----------10~-12-14b17r14--10~--|-12h14-----5/7\5~-5/7\5~--|
D:|-----10-12-----|----------------|-----------|------5/7\5~--|
A:|-12~-----------|----------------|-----------|--------------|
E:|---------------|----------------|-----------|--------------|


      Now that one part comes back, but instead of playing the same
thing twice,
the second part of this one goes like this...

e:|--1-3-1-3-5-8-10-12-10~--8~--|----------------|    Then it goes back to the
B:|--3-5-3-5-6-8-10-13-10~--8~--|----------------|    chorus part, and you're
G:|--------|---------|----------|--10~-----------|    crazy if you think I'm
D:|--------|---------|----------|--10~-----------|    gonna try to tab out that
A:|--------|---------|----------|---8~-----7-8---|    fast solo...yeah right...
E:|--------|---------|----------|--------8-------|


      Then, there's this part...(this is how I play it...)

e:|--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------|
B:|--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------|
G:|--------------|--------------|--------------|--------3-----|
D:|---------2-3--|-----5p3-7p3--|---------2-3--|-----5p3-7p3--|
A:|-----0-3------|--------3---3-|-----0-3------|------------3-|
E:|--1~----------|--1~----------|--1~----------|--1~----------|


     Play that twice, then there's this...(I think it's 3/3...)

e:|-------------|-------------------|   It does this twice |--------|=|
B:|-----10-8----|-----10h11p10-8----|   and then does it   |--------|=|
G:|---10----9---|---10----------9---|   twice up higher    |--10~~--|=|
D:|--8-------10-|--8-------------10-|   and ends on this>> |--10~~--|=|
A:|-------------|-------------------|                      |---8~~--|=|
E:|-------------|-------------------|                      |--------|=|

First off, it's in C# minor, not D.

That intial descending chord bit is wrong.

It is....

(C#m) (B) (C#5)(B5)  (Amaj7)(B7/A)(Amaj7)(B/A)(A/B)   

| --12---11---9---7- R|----------------------------- ----
| --9---------9---7- E|----9----7-----5-----4-----2- --5-
| -------11--------- P|----9----8-----6-----4-----2- --2-
| --11---9----11--9- E|----7----7-----6-----4-----2- --2-
| ------------------ A|----0---(0)---(0)---(0)----2- (second time --2-
| ------------------ T|---------------------------- last chord is)----
