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------------|A#----------0------------|F#----------1------------|C#-----------------------|G#-----------------------|D#----0(*)---------------|
* - put your pick under the string and pull up as hard as you can, gets a real sound too it. Gotta love John Lee. 2.
D#----------0------------|A#----------0------------|F#---0h1----1------------|C#-----------------------|G#-----------------------|D#-----------------------|
h - hammer on 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.
