 chorus riff (random harmonics throughout)

***standard tuning***
 trippy interlude.  i think this is played on a bass guitar judging by the tone
 and the fact that on the live album, Zakk plays the notes higher because his
 low E string is tuned down.  so this is the bass transcribed for a guitar in
 standard tuning.  i use a dual phaser and lots of delay to get the right sound
 for this part. i put the fingering for the notes under them to make it easier.
 it is played with 2 basic chord shapes.
