We've condensed the 2 guitar parts of this song to work for 1 guitar. The 2 guitar parts for the song are essentially the same, with only slight rhythm differences, so this is a great way to get the best from both guitars, and sound the same as the original!

The entire solo is included as well - and the good news is it's not too difficult to learn, but you'll need a whammy bar to get the nice long vibrato on some notes.

Intro / Verse - Start out with the A major and play between that and the next D major chord (with slight variations as you strum).

Tight timing is essential for this part, and the chord shapes are a little tricky to switch between, but once you get the hang of them slowly, they will come quite easily with some practice. This very famous riff repeats quite a few times through the verses. It's very catchy and fun to play this song because it's not too hard and everybody knows it!

Chorus - Very straightforward and simple. However - pay attention to the fact that the powerchords are played using the 1st and 4th fingers (not 1st and 3rd, as would be normally the case). The reason is that you need to use your 3rd finger for playing quickly on the adjacent string (9th fret on A string), and also there is a chord requiring you hold the 4th fret with your 1st finger and the 7th fret with your 4th finger.

The chorus is all possible to do using the 1st and 3rd fingers instead - if your fingers are long enough. But the way shown here is still the most practical way to play it.

No need to repeat these verse / chorus riffs again in the ActionTab because they repeat constantly throughout the song. The only section that varies significantlly is the very last chorus - as the song ends on a fuller chord than in all the previous choruses. Therefore we finish the song too showing you that end chord (an E/A powerchord).

The solo is long, and is played over the piano / bass line during the song. We've shortened the long gaps between solo parts, but every note is still there. This type of solo is a very typical rock solo, with some lovely blues bends and vibrato used in the right places. It starts and ends in the A pentatonic minor scale, with a shift to the B pentatonic minor scale about halfway through for a time.

Notice at points the vibrato on certain held note-bends is achieved by wavering the whammy bar (tremelo arm). It is fairly frequently used, so you may wish to keep the whammy bar held using the 4th finger of your picking hand throughout much of the solo. That way you can apply the whammy vibrato very quickly without having to reach for it!

As always, use your ear to guide you for the length and duration of the bends and vibratos, and ...have fun!
