a few notes on my notation: 
                               X = scratch with fret hand palm or pick
                               \ = slide towards bridge
                               / = slide towards nut
                            P.H. = Pinch Harmonic
                            P.M. = Palm Muting
                            ~~~~ = vibrato
                               V = sweep pick (high to low strings)
                    22b(24)b(22) = bend to 24th fret, release to original pitch 
                               p = pull off
                               h = hammer on



                       "In My Dreams with You"
                             by Steve Vai
                          


there is some weird harmonist effect on this and it pans left and right
until about :20

     this is tricky...mute the strings with your fret hand, and then
     use the side of your pick and scratch diagonally across the strings
     as notated (it takes a bit of practice and LOTS of precision, be
     patient):
     X1-right behind neck humbucker, X2-over first coil of neck humbucker
     X3-start behind neck humbucker and go towards bridge humbucker
     (this is a cool effect, and if you fiddle with it, you'll find 
      all sorts of weird harmonic noises between the end of your neck and 
      your bridge pickup...enjoy)

       \ whammy down to about E      X4-start around the 17th fret and 
                                     slide using the side of the pick
                                     (with the pick at about a 30 degree
                                     angle from the strings). Apply 
                                     enough pressure so you can hear 
                                     the notes you scratch across on 
                                     the fingerboard.
