Then key change to Bb (chords: Bb, G#) over solo:
E: |--------------------------|
B: |-4------4------4------4---|
G: |-6b8----6b8----6b8----6b8-| then you just use the Bb minor pentatonic scale...Billie goes to fast for me to tab out the entire solo, but there are a could main themes, the above bend being one, and
E: |-----6-9b-9b-9b-|
B: |-6-9------------|
G: |----------------|
being another. The solo however, is only in Bb minor pent. at the 6th fret
position:
    6th  7   8   9
E: |-x-|---|---|-x-|
B: |-x-|---|---|-x-|
G: |-x-|---|-x-|---|
D: |-x-|---|-x-|---|
A: |-x-|---|-x-|---|
E: |-x-|---|---|-x-|
Just go wild; do a lot of pulling, hammering and bending. Then end in a glorious haze of feedback and spasticness...or just kinda fizzle out like on the record.
