The guitar solo features an iconic lick and riffing off barre chord shapes. First, we travel all the way up to the 12th position and play a cool repeated lick based off an E7 shape. Next, we switch to the 5th position over the A chord, and start picking based of an A major barre chord shape. There's a cool slide up to an A triad at 9th position just to give the part some cool movement.

Then we move down to open position to riff off the open E and B7 chords. Dig into that nice single note riff based of the B7 chord, with some chromatics thrown in for good measure! Then it's back into the verse groove.
