(Note : This tab for the solo is greatly inspired by the original
tab of the solo, and many thanks to the author of that tab. It
Was quite accurate but wrong in a couple of places, basiclly here
I changed it to be as close as possible to Kirk.)

(For the solo, James plays the main riff twice, then his part of
the prechorus, and his part of the chorus. Its amazing how well
the solo fits in.)
