Solo:
 This solo is tricky to make it sound right, since it depends on the interplay between the
 two guitars so much. I've tabbed it out one guitar at a time, and since they both move up
 the fretboard at different times, learning both is the best way to make it sound good.

Outro:
 The outro is basically the same as the intro! I don't have tabs for that part,
 but it's pretty much just jamming out on three chords. (D chord diagramDD Major, B chord diagramBB minor, and G chord diagramGG major)

 So there you have it! This thing was a monster to tab out, and I'm
 still not so sure about the solo, but it's as close as I can get it!
 If you have any corrections, please submit them, this song is awesome
 enough that it warrants its own tabs!  Thank you very much!
