The full video, audio, backing track, transcription, chord chart and interview are featured in Guitar Techniques issue GT325, available as of July 28th."

Friedman: "Hey friends! I very rarely talk in this much depth about my thought process while soloing, but since the fine folks at Guitar Techniques created this nice little track for me to solo over, I got into some details. I hope you get something from this."
