The album version of this has  2  electric  guitars, one clean with an
amp tremolo effect,  and  the  other  semi-clean,  both played WITHOUT
picks. The tremolo effect  could  possibly  be  approximated with some
hectic chorus pedal settings.  Although  John  and Sonny probably play
the two parts on the album, it  is  very impractical to play either at
the same time as singing. For practical  purposes, if you want to play
the album parts  with two  guitarists,  one singing, then the handiest
thing to do is to have the  singer  play the clean part, and the other
guitarist the semi-clean, and swap for the choruses.
I hope this isn't too confusing-  the  tab  for  the solo walks a fine
line between being understandable and not  taking up too much space so
that you don't have  to  wade  through  pages  of  tab. ASCII's such a
bummer- all this took up just  over  a single page of manuscript paper
for me. Anyway, corrections and comments always welcome.

Chorus:
This is how the chorus is played  the  first time- the last 2 bars are
played differently each verse. I'm not writing each verse out since it
takes up an awful lot of space-  refer  to  the album to get the other
fills. However, note that the last (outro) chorus consists of, more or
less, the first two bars played 9 times altogether.
