This is how the main riff goes. PO is a pull-off, and the rhythm is very weakly shown above the bar. As far as the second part of the verse goes, just hit a D Chord a couple of times like so:
e:-----------|B:-----7-----|G:-----7-----|D:-----7-----|A:-----5-----|E:-----------|
And then for the chorus. Each one of these chords is a measure, and you can strum them at will. Listen to the record for the correct feel. CHORUS ======

As far as the solo goes.... it's in A with a lot of Wah... I don't feel like taking the time to transcribe it. Although I recommend you just kind of find the right key and play it. That's usually the way I do with my band. Just know what key you're in and sort of jam, remembering the overall thematic things. Have fun with this. If you need any help or any other songs transcribed, let me know... Brandon bcorey@netcom.com
