This is the greatest live song ever. The rhythm is some kind of variation on a twelve bar blues and gets sort of tedious, but if you've got second guitar then you can spice it up a bit with some riffs between lines.

That's all there is to the rhythm. That pattern is repeated throughout the song. The solos and licks are improvised on the D Minor Pentatonic scale, so you can figure those out yourself. It's a great song -- Enjoy
