 Okay, at this point, the bass/guitar starts playing the following at a


 sorta "double-time" pace:


 pm.....................

 While a lead electric guitar does something like this:


 remember...play it FAST :)

 Then, the bass/guitar begins its "verse" part; that really cool, crunchy,


 ominous-sounding bassline (while the electric guitar twangs out an Em7):

 You can adlib a bit on that bass part wherever you feel it's necessary.


 Listen to the CD to get the variations. ;)


 


 Now, comes the "pre-chorus" ("Tell me, who ya gonna call when you need that


 affection..."). The basic chords are D A C G, but here's the tab:


 


 [(D)] [(A)] [(C)] [(G)]

 Then for the chorus ("All you bad, bad boys, call her up on the Spank


 Line"), there's this variation on the main verse riff:
