Ac Dc - Shake A Leg tab

ACDC - 'Shake a Leg'
From: 'Back in Black'
tabbed by: jjhand

I fixed up the Version 2 tab, since the riffs and solo were pretty off.  
The real solo has a EVH-inspired Two-Handed tapping lick towards the end 
and plenty tremelo picking and pentatonic riffage. Check it out!
