                                  INTRO
(First, Gtr.1 plays the first bar and Fig.1 once (Gtr.2 is quiet). Then
Gtr.1 repeats Fig.1, while Gtr.2 joins in with Fig.2a and 2b. After this,
Gtr.1 plays Fig.3a, and Gtr.2 simultaneously plays Fig.3b.)

second 4/4:

                                  VERSE 1
(Gtr.1 plays Fig.1 twice, Fig.4 once, Fig.1 once. Gtr.2 simultaneously
plays Fig.2b eight times, but the last chord (A) is replaced by another
(Asus4). I will call this Fig.2c. After this, Gtr. and 2 play the first bar
of Fig.3 twice, but they treat it as a 4/4 bar instead of a 2/4 bar.)


Gtr.1: play Fig.1 four times, but the third time, play Fig.4:

Gtr.2: play Fig.2b eight times, but replace the last two notes of Fig.2
(x02220) by x02235. Call this Fig.2c

Gtr.1 and 2: play the first bar of Fig.3a and 3b twice, ald hold the last
note so that the bar is 4/4 instead of 2/4

                                  CHORUS
(Gtr.1 plays Fig.5 three times, but the last bar always changes. I call the
first time it is played Fig. 5a, the second time 5b, and the third time 5c.
Simultaneously, Gtr.2 plays Fig.6 three times. Then Gtr.1 sustains the last
note of Fig.5c, while Gtr.2 plays a B chord.)

times)

                                  CHORUS
(Gtr.1: play Fig.5a once, Fig.5b twice, and Fig.5c once. Gtr.2: simultanea-
ously play Fig.6 four times)

                                 ---------

                                  BRIDGE
(Gtr.1 sustains the last note of Fig.5c for 1 bar, and then plays a F#
chord. Simultaneously (starting when Gtr.1 is sustaining the note), Gtr.2
plays Fig.7. Then Gtr.1 plays Fig.8a, and Gtr.2 simultaneously plays
Fig.8b. They repeat this two times, but the last time Gtr.2 only plays the
F# chord in the last bar once instead of several times. Fig.8 is rather
tricky, because the first bar is 7/8 (instead of 8/8), and the second is
4/4).


Gtr.1 holds the last note for 1 bar, with vibrato, and then plays

and the second bar is 4/4.

Repeat Fig.8a and 8b two times, but the last time, in Fig.8b, in the second
bar, just play xx4676 once.

                                GUITAR SOLO
(Gtr.1 plays the solo. Gtr.2 repeats Fig. 6 over and over. Often the tab
does not represent all six strings. In such cases, I name the strings which
are represented).
