"Quiet" bit with "Take a Look..."
I'll try and show the basic idea. Finger the open Am and try to
follow the melody by lifting your finger on 2nd string. Then pick
the Fmaj7 chord anyway you want.

Main Verse Riff:
Similar idea to the previous part except you follow the melody
on the 3rd string. When muting the strings and strumming between
the parts shown lift your 3rd or 4th finger off the 3rd string,
i.e. don't hold the melody notes down,just keep the A power chord
fingered. Play the extended notes with upstrokes to emphasise the
melody.

SOLO'S:
Transcribing solo's is not my strong point but you should the
main ideas from the following. These are the album solo's.
Some of fast licks, especially Dave's are more approximations
than anything else.
