There are two rhythm guitars, but I don't have a clue who's who.
So I just call them rhythm guitar 1 (the guitar panned to your right
speaker) and 2 (the guitar panned to your left speaker).

Rhythm guitar 1

The Bb- and the Eb-chords are quite a stretch in first position. I've
choosen for this as the low F can only be reached in the first
position. You can also play these chords in the sixth position but
then the distance to the low F is very large.
This would be the alternative:

  1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +    1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +

Play these four bars three times but replace the two last bars the
third time by:

Solo:

The backing for the solo is the same as the first eight bars of
the chorus.

Before you start with the solo you'll have to learn an old country-lick
which is used in rock many times (if you don't know it already).
Play the following triad:

E|--8--|             E|-----|  For this   E|-----|
