Alex Skolnick:
This is the Player for GW V2.0

Vocal Melody In contrast to the song's intro, which Skolnick plays an octave higher than the original, the vocal melody is starts out being played an octave lower and makes extensive use of open strings. After once through, Alex again bring the melody up an octave for the remainder of the verse. Notice that he changes one note at the end of vocal melody to better suit a particular chord voicing.
