Now for the solo. Whammied notes are signified with w's, tapped
notes with t's. The 5^ note is an artificial harmonic created with the
thumb of your picking hand. Gaze skyward, whisper a quick prayer to
the gods of rock and roll, and attempt this. :

Don't worry, I can't play it like Eddie does, either.
All that's really left of the song is the interlude near the end (C'mon,
Dave, give us a break!) I didn't bother tabbing out the whole thing
because there isn't much to it, but basically it starts with Eddie
sliding up to a G#...

...then playing a smooth descending thing, then playing around with
these two shapes (pluck 'em with your fingers)....
