I ran out of room but at the end of the solo Lee plays XX7777 harmonic and
bends it with a trem bar, or by pulling on the neck.

here is where my notation gets weird.

guitar 1 (again strumming not shown)
     FIG 1      FIG 2
A---0--0--0--|--0--0--0--|
A---0--0--0--|--0--0--0--|
G---14-12-11-|--21-19-18-|
G---14-12-11-|--21-19-18-|
F#--0--0--0--|--0--0--0--|
F#--0--0--0--|--0--0--0--|

guitar 2 plays 002200 with fig 1. and 000000 with fig 2. it sounds bad
when i play it too, but guitar 2 is way down in the mix and i promise that
is what they play.

guitar 2
with FIG 1 (repeat)     repeat
A---17-17-17-16-19-|-[-19-19-19-19-17-16-17-16-]--16-16-16-16-17-16-17-16-x\-|
A---17-17-17-16-19-|-[-19-19-19-19-17-16-17-16-]--16-16-16-16-17-16-17-16-x\-|
G------------------|---------------------------------------------------------|
G------------------|---------------------------------------------------------|
F#-----------------|---------------------------------------------------------|
F#-----------------|---------------------------------------------------------|

trem pick the last slide down.

guitar 1 plays 006600
while guitar 2 plays 886600 then 776600.

guitar 2 continues as above
while guitar 1 repeats:
A---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
A---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
G---3-3-3-2-3-5-3-2-2-2-2-2-0-2-|
G---3-3-3-2-3-5-3-2-2-2-2-2-0-2-|
F#------------------------------|
F#------------------------------|

it ends with Lee dropping the trem bar on 776600 with the top 4 somewhat
muted.
