****************************************************************************
Vaginal Jesus are not to be taken seriously. The nature of the lyrics is
satirical and should only be viewed as such. I myself belong to one of the
countless ethnic groups the band sings about, but decided to write this tab
for the love of the music. No offence meant towards anyone out there.

On the Solo lead 1 you wrote 7 and 5, thats the right root noted but if you listen to the song its unison bends

You do the same picking etc, but start with no bend, and then continue picking gradually until a full bend
