			*Keep tremolo picking this chord shape
			as you move up each fret until the A string note
			is on the 14th fret

After the tremolo picked chords, Eddie does random pick scrapes and jams his strings
into the pickups to create the crazy sound at the end of the song (I think)!
After that, the song ends on a low E note.

Good luck learning the song, please rate the tab and comment on it!!! :)

This is a great tab. I've been loooking for one forever and I can't tell you how much I appreciate the tabbing of it. Very accurate, only a few parts worth mentioning, like the second solo, but that's probably just because I can't play it right. Definately a tab worthy of 5*'s
