after the solo, there are 3 harmonics, and I'll try to desribe how to play them :
1. Play the natural harmonic on 7th fret on G-string
2. Grab your whammy-bar like you would increase 2-semitones, and release it slowly
3. Play the natural harmonic on 5th fret on G-string BUT
have the whammy bar already pushed down to increase 2 semitones
4. lower whammy-bar to normal position
5. Play the ARTIFICIAL harmonic on 3th fret on G-string bended two semitones higher
and have the whammy-bar one more time pushed down to increase 2 semitones
6. lower whammy bar to normal position, and release bending
To get this cool sound, Alexi doubles this part, I think with artifical harmonics.
But THIS is the way as he played it live!
If you don't understand my words, here is it in tabulature
