 but in general, each tab staff has two measures of lead playing (except 
 for the bridge, which condenses eight measures onto one staff).
-The song is in the key of D. Most of the lead guitar parts are in
 D pentatonic minor.
-The chords in the opening progression and verses are power fifths.
-During lead guitar solo parts, rhythm guitar is playing a D(5)  C(5)
 chord progression.
