**First Tab...found the chords, made the actual intro tab. I always listen to George,
so I'm pretty sure it's right, just listen to the song for the rhythms and minor
changes in chord locations.
Here is a link to it: . Thanks!
***The intro isn't in the beginning of the link above, but you can hear it
at 0:56 seconds. Listen close, it is pretty STRAIT forward.
