According to youtube, Matt picks the entire solo. He might do it differently for added effect later, but for now the solo is picked not tapped. I think tapping looks cooler though. unfortunately I only have 22 frets so I'll figure it out.

Disregard the last part of my above comment I didn't version C great tab. Very thorough, and I love that you give different ways to play the solo for everyone. But Matt for sure string skips.

Hey cool info, tonello! That's awesome that's how Matt plays it, now i know. And yeah i figured even if he did string skip, some people would need a tab for tapping just cuz its a tough lick when played that way. I appreciate the comments
