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].

use volume swell's and fast clean attack now.
I think you dont need my guidance to do what comes next.Go with the flow!
Love that Eddie and I'll see ya.....open to suggestions or corrections.
To all that bitch...just[if not at olga] post what you know Somebody will
enjoy it.
