In the Evening

	   
The intro thing is just a droning synthesizer and Jimmy playing the open 
E-string with a bow.  The overdub is called(I think) a rotovibe which 
is a little spinning wheel which when you touch it to the string, 
produces that rolling sound. 
 
The main riff is double-tracked and with a little adlibbing is basically: 
by the way this is with a strat, or something with a whammy bar: 
 
e----------------------------------------------------------------------- 
b---5--5-5--3--3--2\0//2\0-------------5-5-5-3-3--2\0//2------------- 
g---4--4-4--2--0--2\0//2\0-------------4-4-4-2-0--2\0//2-------------

                     ^^^Thats a bend down on the whammy bar

The solo is something like this: 
The starting thing is Jimmy holding down the Whammy Bar as hard as he can 
and forcefully picking out a E-Chord and letting up on the bar:

                                                   pretty quickly
