Backing for Guitar Solo 2 (Guitar 1, Guitar 2)

The guitar solo is too large to fit in the normal stave width so I've included
it in its own section underneath. The bar lines in the solo correspond to those
shown in the backing section.

TAB Key
--------

YbZ - bend the note at fret Y to the same pitch
as the note found at fret Z
/ - slide up
- slide down
X - mute with palm of picking hand
U - upstroke
D - downstroke
V - volume swell
() - incidental note
[] - echo note
~ - hold note
rake - exagerate the strumming of the chord
(but not enough for it to be an arpeggio)

Notes
------

In the intro and verses Guitar 1 uses a volume pedal to swell all the
notes.

There are alot of 'noise' effects in the intro and background of the
verses. The same noise track is used for both verses. If you want to
recreate this, its going to be down to your own experimentation - as
results will depend on what equipment you own.

In choruses 1, 2 and 4 Guitar 1 plays notes based on E, A and Dsus2
chord shapes. This part can be heard clearest in the left hand side
stereo channel. Guitar 2 plays the powerchords, sounding clearest in
the right hand side stereo channel. Chorus 3 differs in that it uses
diads, as in the 'Stratospheric Preaching' section.

The 'Stratospheric Preaching' section uses diads for the first 8 bars.
The last 8-bars are similar to a standard chorus.

In Guitar solo 1, the right hand stereo channel has the clean guitar.
In the left hand channel the solo has delay/echo added. The backing for
the solo is most prominant in the left hand channel - It can be tricky
to pick out as it blends in with the delayed solo guitar signal. The
backing track played by Guitar 1 is based around a 3-octave pattern,
using the root note of the implied backing chord. For the last 4-bars
Guitar 2 is present.

Guitar solo 2 is difficult to hear, as Guitar 3 is low in the mix.
This solo is based on the E-minor pentatonic scale. The backing for
the solo is similar to a standard chorus.
