In this lesson I'm going to show you the first half (approximately) of the outro guitar solo, which is a 32 bar solo. Up 'til now, we've been in a more intermediate level of guitar playing, but now we're in advanced level terrain. Take it slow, chunk by chunk!

The 1st chunk is an 8 bar chunk. This phrase involves two harmonized guitars that are utilizing volume swells. This acts as a lead-in to the solo, more of an "ambient introduction" to what is to follow.

The 2nd chunk is a 4 bar phrase and is the true beginning of the guitar solo.

The 3rd chunk is is another 4 bar phrase that takes place between the 15th and 18th frets and utilizes bends and whammy bar vibrato.

The 4th chunk is a 3 bar phrase starting with a bend on the 20th fret and leading back down to 8th position C mixolydian based phrases.
