Man Greg, there is something magical about this solo, especially the last tapping bit. Could you please PM me the tabs for the tapping part? I want to look at the notes and try to understand what makes it sound so amazing smile.gif

Sorry Ben. You are correct. I have indeed let knowledge escape. Clearly there is much still to be taught.

Man, you haven't let knowledge escape, you have let knowledge pass to new generations smile.gif This is how we learn what we know don't we? Imagine all scientists keeping their discoveries secret, what would happen then tongue.gif But I promise I won't use this tapping in any solo of mine biggrin.gif I can't do tapping anyway, I never learned it..

It is a solo in the true function of a solo, it would fit in with a cool song, it takes you from one place to another musically, it has purpose.
