                           Tablature Explanation
     p.m. - palm muting
     ^    - bend, above the staff is the amount of bend
            F - full step     1/2 - half step    2 - two steps...
     tr~~~- trill between note and note in paranthesis
     H    - Hammer on
     P    - Pull off

     Note, in part of the solo, i placed the Hammer ons and pull offs
       above the staff to make reading easier.  I also used lower case
       and upper case for the same reason.  There is no difference in 
       the meanings.
