7a starts when Kirk starts playing riff 1 distorted and the orchestra is still doing
the breakdown part.  7a continues through the first two "And it comes to be" lines,
then switches to 7b for the rest.

the solo ,sent in by jon ,jon@symons.demon.nl

ok everybody , now here's the solo how it really goes,
I figured this out exactly how it is played by kirk ,
but I havent got the timing , but if you're good enough to play this solo,
you wouldn't really need timing ,

there ya go!!

Here are some additions sent in by MetGuitar@aol.com:

The first on is when James sings the slow freight train part.

Ab--------------------------------------------------------------------
Eb--------------------------------------------------------------------

( it's just little variations of those notes, it's easy to listen to and 
figure out the pattern)

The second part is the thing he plays during the riff that comes after the 
solo.
