Gosh I love this song!It's probaby my very favorite who song and I think it shows the
talent of each member very well.john,pete and keith all get to shine during the jam
when the vocals rest(best part!),and this is their best version of this song.Do any of
you guys know if pete was high at the isle of weight festival?because i know he wasn't
high on live at leeds and i also know that he played better at leeds than the isle of
weight!


this is played at a fairly fast pace,it's played in the key of (E) the whole time so
if you want to improvise it should be fairly easy as well.To let you know,some of it
is played a 'little' sloppy so i tabbed what i think are the intensional notes for
the 'main' riffs,enjoy!

~~~~~|-------12----------------------------| you probably get it by now,all it is|-15bf----1512151215121512-15bf-17-15-| is the blues scales and such. don't|-------------------------------------| bother learning ANY of this note for|-------------------------------------| not,pete plays everything different|-------------------------------------| each time,including the riffs,not just|-------------------------------------| the solos.just use these solos and
riffs to improvise off of and that way you can make up your own cool solo! I covered pretty much the whole thing except for a little bit of the last part which is never played the same. this song is basicaly just a complex jam in the key of (E) so you can prob- ably figure the rest out for yourself.
right after the solo peted does this decending riff down the fret board inhalf steps and then he does this little riffy thing. play variations of this.|----------------------||-15-14-14h15-12-12h14-||-14-14-14----14-14----||----------------------||----------------------||----------------------|
