Hold that last chord for another bar


Before I tab out the solo it's worth making a few points.  First,
its a really difficult solo! And second, some parts are barely
audible and hard to tab accurately.  I think my attempt will give
you a loose version to thrash along to the CD with or give somebody
a good head start to tabbing a better version.

The part immediately after the solo consists of a few parts based on one
theme.  For ease in writing the song structure, I've split this part into
4 seperate riffs.
