~The solo is played over this next part. This guitar is played in the background.
I will post the tab for the solo later.
If you would like to get it sooner, email me.
Also, notice that this part, for the first two riffs,
is the same main riff, played one fret lower (Drew14243@Hotmail.Com):~

E-mail me if you have any questions or comments at all. There is a line of lyrics missing...
After "Goodnights can hypnotize", comes another line.
If you know what comes after that, please e-mail me and I will update it. Enjoy.
