     This is a rather easy song - except that it is played fast.  I believe I
have gotten everything down here.  I do not have my guitar with me while I am
writing this.  This is all from memory.  There may be a few more notes here
and there and the cords in riff #6 are probably played a few more times than
indicated but this should give you a real foundation to build on.  Have fun!
