Rhythm Change (4/4 -> 6/8)

Bass Solo (8 measures)

The next part is played by 3 guitars. The upper notes are guitar 1,
those in the middle are guitar 2 and the lower ones are for guitar 3.
I usually play the first and second guitar simultaneously. This sounds
pretty good.

I'll leave away the 2nd and 3rd guitar now. It would be a little bit
complicated to put them into the following parts.
