 SOLO:


 


 for a few bars, there is no guitar whatsoever as the drum and bass set


 up the mood or whatever. then, the lead guitar comes in with:


 


 

 
 E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
 B|-------------------.-.-.--.-.-.--------------------------------------|
 G|-------------------9-9-9--7-7-7---9-7----------------------.--.-.-.--|

 G|--------------------------------------------------------------|
 D|--------------------------------------------------------------|

 all these tapped notes with space after them are sustained notes, so


 keep your tapping finger held down

 *do a tap the 12th fret as normal. then, while holding down the 12th


 fret with your right hand, bend the string with your left. then you


 release the bend and pull off the tapped note

 BRIDGE: both guitars basically repeat what they did the previous bridge,


 and then rhythm plays:


 


 all palm muted


 

 
 E|-----------------|
 B|-----------------|
 G|-----------------|
 D|---------------.-|
 A|-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-0-|
 E|-0-0-1-1-2-2-3---|

 


 


 OUTRO CHORUS:


 


 Rhythm guitar does nothing for a while, and lead plays the following:


 


 

 
 E|-5---5--5--5--5------5----------------------|
 B|-8b--8b-8b-8b-8br-5-8b-5-7-5-7-5------------|
 G|------------------------5-7-5-7-5-5vv-------|
 D|----------------------------------7vv-5\----|
 A|--------------------------------------------|
 E|--------------------------------------------|
 E|-8----8----8------------------------|
 B|-11b--11b--11br-----10---7----------|
 G|-----------------/9----9---7--------|
 D|-----------------------------10vv---|
 A|------------------------------------|
 E|------------------------------------|

 


 


 [AB]  

 
 E|---------------------------------|
 B|------13-15-12---------------|
 G|---x---------------12----12-12b--|
 D|-x--------------------14---------|
 A|---------------------------------|
 E|---------------------------------|

 


 


 At this point, the rhythm guitar enters with Rhy. 1 as the lead


 continues. I think the rhythm guitar eventually goes up an octave,


 but it's not that important.


 


 

 
 E|-----20--------------------------------------------|
 B|-20b----20b~~~r------------------------------------|
 G|--------------------14----12-----------------------|
 D|----------------/14----12----12-12-10-10--12p10\---|

 E|-8--~~~-10---12---15b-------------------------|

 G|----------------------7-7p5-5~~-.-.-.-.---.-5-.-|
 D|----------------------7-7---7~~-7-5-7-5---7---7-|
 A|------------------------------------------------|
 E|------------------------------------------------|

 


 


 now the rhythm plays:


 


 

 
 E|-------2-2-2-2-2--------2-2-2-2-2--------2-2-2-2-/17-----|
 B|-------3-3-3-3-3--------3-3-3-3-3--------3-3-3-3-/17-----|
 G|-x-x---2-2-2-2-2--x-x---2-2-2-2-2--x-x---2-2-2-2-/18---2-|
 D|-x-x-0-0-0-0-0-0--x-x-0-0-0-0-0-0--x-x-0-0-0-0-0-/19---2-|
 A|-------------------------------------------------/19---0-|
 E|-------------------------------------------------/17-----|

 


 


 while the lead plays:


 


 

 
 E|-------7--------------12--------------19------------------|
 B|----8-----8--------13----13--------20----20----20/22------|
 G|-7-----------7-12----------12-19----------19----------2---|
 D|--------------------------------------------------------2-|
 A|--------------------------------------------------------0-|
 E|----------------------------------------------------------|
