Order: Intro - Bridge - Verse - Bridge - Chorus - Bridge
            Verse - Bridge - Chorus - Solo - Chorus

Well, yeah.. that's it! After a little time of practice you can play that great song!
The only thing that's a bit hard to play is maybe the Solo which is a bit fast
But you can also play just the Bridge which is kinda the same...
Well, you just have to practice.. like Timmy ;)
