  For this part on the 5w/7w/8w, that is one pick only. Push the wammy
  bar one step down whenever your finger goes over the 5, 7 , and 8. You only
  pick the string once and slide your finger all the way to the 12s.

  This part may look confusing. Pick the 5th fret on the G string, and bend it
  one whole step up. While holding the 5th fret bend up, easily tap the 14 and 
  12th fret to produce a tapped harmonic. Keep the 5th fret bend a whole step
  until the .5vvvvvvvvv part. the .5vvvvvv part means you drop the 5th fret whole
  step bend, down to a half step bend, while still tapping easily the 14 and 12 fret.

  Hold the whole step bend while picking the 18s, and the tremelo picked
  18. Also, hold the whole step bend on the 22s. Basically, hold the bend for
  the  ^^^^^^^^^^s.

There you have it. It's one of the top solos made by Eddie Van Halen.
