Tabbed by Christopher Preston

        The bass intro/verse riff uses a very muted F#, which can be achieved
by either palm muting, but it looks like just not pressing the string all the
way to the fretboard.  For The Hammer-On 16-17 part of the solo, playing 
live, Les plucks every 16, instead of letting them all ring. The E's
vibration at the end of the bass solo is the work of Les's Whammy Bar, but 
can be [almost] duplicated by detuning the E string, then tuning back up.
(Be carefull, you still have to hit the E for the chorus and the verse! be
sure to tune up after if you chose to do that)
