3rd lead part
This last part is the last solo at the end of the song
minus the slide at the very end.
The rhythm to this last part is a repeating G and F
progression just like the beginning of the chorus.
As if singing Lord I was born a ramblin man over and
over to the end of the song.If your playing rhythm to
the song it helps to sing it to yourself to keep
timing.You will be surprised how the lead notes fall
into place once you learned how to play it.
