  Okay, give me a break, I can't tab this solo!  Some day, I'll put 
  it up, probably, but it is like a minute and a half of NOISE, so 
  for right now, improvise during this section.  Here are the 
  chords:  4 measures of E
           2 measures of A
           2 measures of E 
           1 measure of G
           1 measure of B7 
           1 measure of E then A
           1 measure of E/B then B7
           REPEAT until the end of the B7 
           measure, and play this:
