[END OF SONG]

Note 1: Live, Joe holds this note until the next note, but on the studio album,
Joe holds the note until the end of Riff 5, and another guitar plays
the next few notes. This is also where the last half of Riff 1 is played.

Note 2: This pick slide is played by another guitar underneath note 17.
This may be the guitar that played up until the 20b22 bend (Note 1).
Live, Joe does the pick slide by simply not holding note 17 for very long.

Note 3: These two connected bars are two guitars. As one guitar stops (the top bar),
the other guitar starts (the bottom bar). Live, Joe plays the top bar until
the '7 7' bit, then plays the bottom bar, ignoring the '5 6' of the top bar.

Notation Key:

h = hammer on b = bend
p = pull off r = release bend
/ = slide up x = muted string
\ = slide down x\ = pick slide
~ = hold note Also, / and \ can mean T.Bar if stated.
