Listen to a lot of live versions of the song and you'll see similar patterns that Rob Baker plays. To understand the solo it's important to use the scale and know the patterns. For example...
Pattern A:e|----------------------|B|-5/12~-12/10~-9h10p9~-|G|----------------------|D|----------------------|A|----------------------|E|----------------------|
Pattern B:e|----------------|B|-5~-5/3~-2h3p2~-|G|----------------|D|----------------|A|----------------|E|----------------|
Pattern A and B are identical but played on different parts of the fretboard. Listen to a live version until you hear these patterns. Then try switching between them when you are playing and figure out your own patterns using the scale.
Try ending with this...e|-------5/12-10-9-7~-|B|-5/12~--------------|G|--------------------|D|--------------------|A|--------------------|E|--------------------|
=============================================================================== (Intro x1) Verse 1: He said I'm fabulously rich, c'mon just lets go. She kinda bit her lip, Geez, I don't know. Bridge 1: But I can guarantee There'll be no knock on the door. I'm a total pro, that's what I'm here for. Chorus 1: I come from downtown. Born ready for you. Armed with will and determination and grace, too (Intro x1) (Bridge x4) Verse 2: The secret rules of engagement are hard to endorse when the appearance of conflict meets the appearance of force. Bridge 2: But I can guarantee there'll be no knock on the door. I'm a total pro, that's what I'm here for. Chorus 2: I come from downtown. Born ready for you. Armed with skill and it's frustration and grace, too. (Outro x?) Him? Here? Now? No! Him? Here? Now? No!
