Ron's Notes:
=======================
[#1]

Even though this is a keyboard part, I found that this section of the song:

    Cm                     D#          D#/A        Cm

Sounds good when played using the Root 5 bar chords like this:
    Cm                     D#          D#/A        Cm
|---3----------------------3-----------3-----------3----------------------|
|---4----------------------4-----------4-----------4----------------------|
|---5----------------------3-----------3-----------5----------------------|
|---5----------------------5-----------5-----------5----------------------|
|---3--------------3---5---6-----------5-----------3----------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

[#2]

Here's the left hand finger positioning I use for this section of the main
solo. Starting off with the third finger. It makes it easier to nail that
last C# note at the end of a fast run.

  3      3 2 3 1 2 4  4  3  1 4     1 2 4   2 4  2 1 2  1 2 1 3  1 4

[#3]

Livgren has such a fantastic comprehension of musical notes. The
last note of the ending solo (an open 3rd string) just rings... and
he possibly is lightly tapping the 12th fret of the 3rd string - giving
the note a slight harmonic tone while it rings out over top the Gm
chord. He manages to get a finger squeaking sound on the strings as well,
as he switches between the final notes. This is easily accomplished on a
wound 3rd string. (But of course, I don't have a wound 3rd string on
my Strat!). So, that throws in the possibility of using the 4th string
for the ending notes. Hmmmm. I guess this is all open to interpretation.
Isn't it great?
