I will have 3 new symbols for this tab.
When you see a note with  ^ after it, it means the note is struck and the whammy is rocked forward.
When you see a note with  * after it, it means the note is struck and the whammy is rocked SLOWLY Back.
When you see a note with ** after it, it means the note is struck and the whammy is QUICKLY rocked fwd then back.
                                                                (This is what gives the “weeooh weeoohsound..lol) 
 
 W/ delay 
(Also, if your delay is not set just right, the whammy part will sound off, so get it as close as you can)

When Justin plays this, his hand never moves, he puts his index on the 14 and ring on the 16, leaving the middle for
The 14 on the G...you have to get used to this and barring the 14th frets will NOT work.., this part is ALL whammy, I practiced it for a long time to get it to sound right. Once you get it, though..its
Sweet. Also....on this part, once you rock the whammy forward on the second 16, keep it forward until after the 14 on the
g is struck, then rock back.
