listen to recording-tempo changes faster-when it does this riff can be substituted-
see song for exact timing

-----X----X--X--X-X-X-X
-----8----8--8--X-X-X-X
-----8----8--8--X-X-X-X
-----6----6--6--X-X-X-X
-----X----X--X--X-X-X-X
-----7----7--7--X-X-X-X

The chord is known as the Hendrix Chord-it is a dominant 7#9 chord-it is refered 
to as the Hendrix Chord because it is most famously used in Jimi Hendrix's song Purple Haze

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

for a live ending of the song, just slow down the tempo after the end on the 
recording to about 20 bpm, then just have the drummer smash the cymbols and guitar/
bass/keyboard play an E chord
