and its pretty much the same throughout,until.

"And im speedin.."

now,that thing before the solo that ROCKS.

                                   v (volume swell.)

and thats pretty much it,besides the solo,but i usually add my own solos,
i usually have what ed did in my head and improvise on it.
also,at the end,when ed is doing the main riff,he ends with:

which is done by gliding down the 6th string w/side of right hand (light-
ly touching it) while hammering on/pulling off w/left hand,which sounds
random harmonics and muted notes.




think its off of VH. #1

Set your guitar to 1/2 step down[Not sure,But it's the way its' done here]
may not be note for note either.I make no claims to being a jam-master or 
something.Have some distortion,turn the amp up and have a -go[dont get evic-
-ted though].
