BREAK AFTER 2nd CHORUS:
Played over intro riff, then over the following chord sequence
which I have called the Rhythm for Solo's.
Note that while the repeating pattern is playing only use an 
F# power chord, do not play it as a major or minor chord. 
The repeating pattern can be varied during the Bm section
by alternatively hammering on to the 12th fret instead of the
11th. I've written it bar by bar to show the syncopation.
