Riff.2 (electric) is a clean electric fill during the lyrics, "Ah, sometimes 
I grow so tired, but I know one thing I've got to do!"  Riff.2 (acoustic) is
the acoustic part played behind Riff.2 (electric).  The chord pattern is
E, F#m7, G#m7 | A, F#m7, E.

These two riffs go on top of each other to make the sound more full.  These
start at "Ramble on, now's the time, the time is now.  Sing my song..."

These riffs are for the first solo.  They harmonize quite nicely.

This song takes a little practice to get the feel for some of these riffs.
Riff.1 should be easy to pick up and the solos are really easy.  Have fun
with this one and get someone to play the acoustric riff while you try to
tackle the electric riffs.  It should sound pretty nice when complete.

Thanks to Danny Felstiener for his TABEDIT 1.4 program!
