Breakdown Riff (x1)

Here are the notes preceding the Breakdown Riff in this section:

This is repeated three times with the preceding notes.

And then:

E|---4-5-6----6---6---6---------|

You can just play ghost notes for the C# on the A string if you want.

(x 24)

Jackson here has a basic riff that he constantly varies in th
is section and I do not have the time to put in all the variations he uses so I'll give 
the basic riff:

G|-----------------8h10---6h8-------|
D|----------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------|
E|-6----66-7-8-9--------------------|

Then: Breakdown Riff (x1)

Breakdown Riff with preceding notes (x 1)

Then:

(Bear in mind the odd rhythms for these parts: the slower section is in 3/4 I think).

E|----------2-----5------------4---6-x-6---6-x-6--|

You know the drill, breakdown riff x 1.

You may feel that the song has sped up, and indeed it has going
into Bernie's solo on the saxophone.  Main riff to close it out.

Some parts might be out, I'll revise them in case they are.
