If the intro riff is a bit tough to nail down at that specific rhythm, then try inputting your own stle into it. I think I TABbed it in the timing that Mike plays it in Riff 2 is a bit buried under the verses and is yet to be figured out by me. I will work on it soon. My brain couldn't take the song anymore so I opted to post it as is and get to work on another song off of the album. Riff 3 was very tough to get. I thought it sounded a bit different each time I heard it. I tried it at different EQ settings and I also slowed it down to half-speed with a four-track recorder. I'm hoping this is right. I've watched Mike play it before but, I decided to transcribe it now rather than when the band was on tour and I could actually watch him play it. How stupid can I get! I do vaguely recall him playing it in the A-chord position that I've TABbed it in. I was curious back then and tried to watch. The other parts of the song are very simple to reproduce. Just watch the slight chord placement changes in the chorus. Happy jamming!!! **************************************************************************** * * * bob * * morgano@ici.net * * * * Howard Stern- "Ozzy, why Prozac?
