Notes: Riffs 4 and 5 are played as backing on the First and Last and Always disc, and they're also played by a keyboard. However, on the "Knocking on Heaven's Door" bootleg, at least, the lead guitar plays them. If you only have one guitar and no keyboard, they add a little variety to an otherwise very repetivitve song. (If you listen closely to the studio version, you can pick up the rhythm.) Bass riff (a) is what's actually played. However, Frank does the vocals as well as bass, and riff (a) is a little too complicated to play while singing, so he plays (a) when he's not singing, and switched between (b) and (c) when he is. I'm too busy with the guitar to pay attention to which he plays when. Here's how I play it: Intro: 1 1 2 3a 3b 3a 3c 1 1 2 3a 3b 3a 3c 1 1 2 3a 3b 3a 3b 4 4 4 5 1 1 2 3a 3b 3a 3c 1 1 2 3a 3b 3a 3c 1 1 2 3a 3b 3a 3b 3a 3b 3a 3b 4 4 4 5 6 (or repeat 4 4 4 5 to fade)
