    I know this is one of Ed's easier leads but can someone give me some tips specially the last part. I can't read tab so otherwise I'd look in GW mag. Sounds like Ed dubbed 2 guitar parts in on the album version! thanks

    EVH used an electric sitar on the lead of that song. It is a fairly easy solo, the first EVH solo I learned, but I don't know how to explain to
    you if you don't know how to read tab. You should
    really look into tab explanation, cause it's very easy to read and you'll be able to figure out a lot more with a good ear and some tab. Good luck.

    Almost the entire lead is played on the B string while the high E string is ringing. You play the melody on the B and pick the E simultaneously. The end is a little lick in the key of A (upper octave) and then divebomb on the open G string.

    It's very easy really like others have said. If you start on the 5th fret of the B string with the little E ringing at the same time(like Jape Man said), that should get you started. Just listen to the progression and work your way up the neck, with the same idea. I would definitely invest some time in learning to read tab, invaluable.

    Thanks guys for the help I got it now boy it is an easy one. Specially compared to stuff like his 5150 lead. My biggest problem with trying to play Ed's stuff and not reading tab is that I end up playing his stuff wrong when I think its right. Every book I have on reading tab seems very hard to learn is there anything over the internet that explains it--easier to learn?
