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!
