The use of whammy bar and harmonics in the solo of "Frank" is difficult too!

One i have problems with is the solo in for the love of god, its really hard to nail cleanly plus you gotta gradually bring the wah into it, ive never heard anybody get it right, not even steve, but steve does do it far better than anyone ive heard, i think its a lot to do with the tone of your guitar.

do you mean he can't do it right in comparison to the studio version? If so, I beleive he admits that it was a great feat getting it down, you can even hear him screaming "YEAH!" after he nails it on the original track.

If not, then your claim has absolutely no logic!

Yep, exactly my friend, that solo is singlemost one of the hardest things ever to nail, you can clearly hear that it was meticulously thought about and he knew what notes to play, where to play em and how to play them, and if steve admits it, its definitely logical to say so
