          Thanks, Danny!


                                                                        

The Intro has heavy distortion. With feedback
around G & F. Tune down 1/2 step to Eb.
The intro riff is this:

E---------------------------------II
B---------------(3)-(3)----------II
G--------3---(3)-(3)---3---5--II
D-3--5--------------------------II
A---------------------------------II
E---------------------------------II
~~ Play this riff 4 times
Main riff:

Will I live tomorrow?!........

E-----------------------------II
B-----------------------------II
G-3-3-----------------------II
D--------5--3-3-------------II
A-----------------3-3~~~---II
E------------------------------II
~~ This riff is played and changed around a bit
from line to line in the song. The changes are:

E-------------------------------II
B-------------------------------II
G--3-3------------------------II
D--------5--3-3---------------II
A-----------------3-1~~~----II
~~ And the other change is:

E-------------------------------II
B-------------------------------II
G-3-3----------------5~~~---II
D------5--3-3-----------------II
A----------------3-------------II
E-------------------------------II
~~The changes are very subtle. Just listen to the
song, and you'll get it right!

The "I DONT.... LIVE TODAY!" part is:

E--------------------------------------II
B--(10)--(10)-----------(10)--(10)------II
G--(10)--(10)-----------(10)--(10)------II
D-------------------------------------II
A-------------------------------------II
E--------------------------------------II
~~Do a 1/4 bend each time the chord is hit. SLASH
is doing some other little runs within the pauses 
but they're mostly add-here notes. So, just hit a
note in the area and if it sounds right, it's 
most likely right!

Notation: the (7)(7) or (3)-(3) thing means its a
chord and both the notes are struck together!
The ~~~~ means to sustain the note!

The song is pretty cool! I really dig jamming along
the radio to it!  Slash is amazing on this one! He 
is really getting into it. So, play with a lot of 
feeling like he does, and it'll be pretty easy!
