A couple of points about the solo.  For the octave part I think that
Karl uses his whammy bar but only very slightly.  However, I think it
sounds OK without it.

Also, the bar marked with an asterisk is practically inaudible on the
CD but I think that its something close to what I've tabbed.  You'll
probably notice that the next bar is difficult to get to in time
without a lot of excess string noise but unfortunately that's the
problem with a solo with two guitarists playing different parts!

If this part becomes too meddlesome or irritating I suggest that you
just do a long finger slide down the thicker strings with some whammy bar
dives.

This next bar is like a 'tapped trill' and is just very fast tapping
(tap about 4 times per tabbed trill) with a single note as anchor.
