		repeat riff 7

here all the solo riffs begin and most of them are probably tabbed right.
But since the bass is barely audible during the solos there might be misstakes.
It should be rather easy to correct if you bother doing so because all the riffs
in this song are rather similar, but what the hell, everybody listens to
the guitars in this part anyway so...

here goes nothing...

Man that is one long and fast song!
You canīt possibly even begin to think how good it feels to be done.
I hope this version will make it easier for you to play the song.
thatīs all for now so until next time keep it heavy
Cheers!
