I've seen one or two versions of this song on the net already, but none
of them seemed to be complete. Well this one isn't either (who am I to
break a trend?), but it does contain slightly more than most versions.
I don't think it's 100% correct (in fact I think it's downright dodgy),
so let me know if you have any additions or corrections.

is only played the first time.

This is the chorus riff; the last time you play this (the fourth time in
the second chorus), don't play the "scale" - hold the Gb for an extra
moment and then go on to Riff H.

This is played at the chorus over Riff F, following the vocal line.

This is played about four times towards the end of the solo-
It's difficult to hear this bit so I don't know which, if either, is
correct -let me know what you think.


The riffs are played _roughly_ in this order 

Riff A x 4 \
Riff B x 4  }Intro.
Riff C x 2 /

Riff D x 3 \Verse-
Riff E x 1 /Play this twice.

Riff F x 4 \Chorus-
Riff G x 4 /Played simultaneously.

Riff C x 2

Repeat Verse.

Repeat Chorus.

Riff H x 2 \
Riff I x 4  }Bridge.
Riff J x 1 /

Riff C x ? \Solo backing.
Riff K x 4 /

Riff C x ? \Outro.
Riff G x ? /Played simultaneously.
