Nice! I like the harmonics towards the end of the solo. Are they quite hard to play?

Wow, you're a guitar hero. Sweet. Okay, who's gonna cover Zappa's "Baby Snakes"?

Thanks for the comments, all.

Spacedog, the harmonics are really easy to play. I think, the way I play them, they're called artificial harmonics. I fret notes with my left hand normally, choke up on the pick, holding it between my thumb and index finger, so there's just a tiny, tiny bit sticking out. Then, as I pluck, the instant after the pick has passed over the string I let my thumb barely graze the string, sounding the harmonic. You can experiment where you pluck from the bridge all the way up the neck to get different harmonics and effects. It takes a little practice and messing around, but it's worth it. If you come up with something interesting, post it up and let me know. Good luck and enjoy.
