Yeah, I looked all over the website...He gives simliar sounding licks, but none of the tapping or legato stuff matches what is in the solo. When he taps and does the legato in the solo, it sounds like he does something with the whammy bar...it sounds really cool, but I cant really figure the individ...

My whole point with this post was to discourage the members of this site who tell people who ask for tabs to simply "figure it out yourself".
