	This pattern doesn't change until the Chorus, where it switches to:

----------------------    Semi P.M.--- 
note:  The parts where it looks like I have the 119th fret indicated came from   
the inconvenience of a two digit number (11), therefore no dash.  The part   
where it says "1199" and "77" are due to this same problem, as well as that two   
sixteenth notes are played while up until here the pattern has been eigth   
notes.  In other words he doubles time splitting the note into two, but not   
skipping a beat.  This isn't really complex at all, the problem is the way I've   
written out the TAB. It wouldn't be confusing if I knew how to do this   
properly.  Sorry. 
					-Dave 
 
	Then back to the main riff of eigth note Es and the D-A-D changes,   
after which the chorus is repeated.  The second time through the main riff and   
chorus there are some minor changes which are probably not too hard to figure,   
including some slides and harmonics (at the seventh fret).  This is because   
there have actually been two electric guitars doing this part, and the second   
guitar changes to these minor variations.  Anyway, let's get to the solo: 
 
	During the solo the second guitar repeats this pattern (until the   
chorus): 
        
       E                 D     A   E 
e-------------------------------------- 
B---T--9-----------------7-----5---7--- 
G---A--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-r-7-----6---7--- 
D---B--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-r-7-----7---7--- 
A------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-r-5-----7---5--- 
E------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-r-------5------- 
       Semi-P.M. throughout 
 
	Okay, this is probably a no-no to do in writing TAB, but to write the   
solo I'm going to pretty well forget about having the dashes mean anything in   
terms of keeping time, and just get the notes down in proper order.  And I   
thought I had no problems with tablature.  Anyone who wants to "clean-up" a   
copy of this and repost is welcome to, perhaps along with sending me a detailed   
e-message as to exactly where I went wrong tabbing things out.  Anyway, lead   
guitar goes like: 
 
e----------12-----------------14--------------------------------------12-------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
 
----10-------------------------------7/9---9-97-7-0     Okay, I know the solo 
10b----10b^10^8---10-8---------------7/9---9-97-7-0 continues on into the  
----------------9------9-8-9---------7/9---9-97-7-0 chorus, but it's 1:40 A.M. 
---------------------------------------------------- right now, and I've got  
---------------------------------------------------- classes from 8:30.  I'm  
----------------------------/12-x-0-r--------------- not sure if this is really  
           					     going to do anyone any   
good anyway, what with my absolute lack of any time structure here.   
	Anyway, I'll post the rest of the solo later if someone will nicely   
e-mail me and show me how to post TAB where dual digit fret numbers and adding   
embellishments like bends won't mess up the time kept by the dashes.  If you   
have a copy of the song to listen to, this posting may yet do you some good, as   
the notes are accurate, I'm fairly sure.  Yawn...
