The solo seems pretty forgiving, for leveling up. I am missing a lot, and getting "Level Up".
Which is good, 'cuz it is way flippier than my fingers are used to.
Yeah, if this solo were as tight as the one at the end in the other arrangements this would be a really tough one They probably should have split this out into a couple of 2 block solos, or a bunch of single block solos rather than have one that is so loose on the levelling.
Got my Day 1 scores up. Can still improve a lot in the 2nd half of the solo (this is where I wish that we either had manual speed, or a youtube video of the chart so that I could pause it and slowly work out what I'm supposed to be playing).
Edit: 111,128 > 114,688 > 116,244 > 117,495 > 118,182
Added a video of the note highway to help people figure out what to play without wading through riff repeater (sometimes I like pull up youtube videos of the charts and pause them at certain places so that I can decipher the notes).

Putting in a placeholder post. My current score at rsevolve is 72,054.
Edit: Got a few runs in last night and got everything maxed out except that interlude and solo. Not sure I'm quite up for that tapping section yet, but I'll keep working it. My initial entry is 80,792.
Edit 2: Tried to work on the tapping a bit last night. I completely bombed it. Glad there is an option to just level things back up to max achieved. I still managed a run of 88,644 though. Not sure if I'm going to have time to try and push this over 90k, but I'm going to give it a shot.
Edit 3: Final entry. I make my goal of breaking 90k. got a final score of 91,420
As cgoerg mentiond you 'can' get through it without tapping, but the correct way to play it is to tap a couple of the notes. There was a video posted of this section a while back, but it has since been removed from youtube for some reason...
Oh Man, this interlude is the coolest thing! This is my first song with tapping! If you tap the 10th and again the 7th after the slide it gets relatively easy to level... I got it maxed on the second RR leveller pass (less than 60 lives),
Unfortunately for me, my guitar doesn't register hammer-ons or pull-offs that well, so tapping is completely out of the question for me. I have to play the interlude with a lot of picking for it to register, as well as most solos including this one (which makes everything considerably more difficult than it needs to be). I'm running a '96 MiM Strat, so perhaps weak pickups are the issue?
