This isn't really much but I just wanted to give people an
idea how to play the solo for "Black"

this is the infamous "do di do do do di do" part 

(w/ wah pedal)

B--12h13--15--13--12h13p12---
G----------------------------
D----------------------------
A----------------------------

this is what i play when eddie does his "ascending moan"

e----------------------------------------------
B--12/15---15--15/17----19--19b20r19--17-------
G----------------------------------------------
