I think it's played by Eric Hoffman, and he uses the whammy bar in
some places.
It also sounds like he has a Chorus effect on.
|------------------------------12-13---------------------------------|
|-------------------9-10-13-14-------14-13-11-/10--------------------|
|-----------6-8-9-10------------------------------10-9-7-------------|

With this next part of the solo, put the treble switch on the guitar
onto clean sound and then trem pick all the notes. Sort of a slow
shredding bit.

I don't know what the next bit of the solo is because it's some weird
arpeggio thing or something!

Under the solo Riff B is played
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-1111--------------------------------------------------------------|

Well there you go, very long winded, theres lots of different fills
that you have to watch out for but they are all in the tab so you
shouldn't have any problems. I think it's all right, there might be
some changes that can be made to the solo, so feel free to e-mail me
any comments or changes etc. Cheers!!
