This song only has really one chord, So the way you play it is important.
The first stroke is down and muted, the second is up (dont mute this.)

E:

D#----------0------------|
A#----------0------------|
F#----1-----1------------|
C#----2------------------|
G#----2------------------|
D#----0------------------|

That one chord is the most of the song, but there are a few add-ins which John Lee uses 
spice it up a bit.

1.


D#----------0------------|

F#----------1------------|
C#-----------------------|
G#-----------------------|

* - put your pick under the string and pull up as hard as you can, gets a real 
sound too it.  Gotta love John Lee.

Note:  To get this playing pattern down you need to listen to the song a few times, and 
will get it.  takes some practice, as I am still learning this myself, but it gets 
as you go.  Good Luck, have fun.
