Now, for a while the song goes back to lyrics and follows
the same patterns of chords as before.  The next real
challenge is the outro solo.  This solo is pretty hard
if you're not used to Slash's maniacal slurs.  There
are some parts played with blistering speed and aggression.
You'll be able to tell what those parts are because there
will be a lot of notes before you see a notated chord
change.  Remember your 16th note triplets.  Good luck!!!

Etc.  Etc.

... the rest of it is pretty easy stuff.  Some of it is
buried in the mix and tough to make out, while other
parts are clearer.  To tab it out would be confusing...
but all the difficult parts from the beginning to this
point are here.  Pay attention to your Mixolydian and
blues scales.
