Tabbed by Christopher Preston
	A lot of basses don't have a 24th fret, and the ones that do, I find
it uncomfertable to play up there.  So, here it is, without the two note  
chords.  It sounds fine even if you don't play the two note chords, btw.
	The "Main Riff" plays for the intro, after "Fire her up, man".  It 
continues for vs. 1-2 then I have it written out.  The "Patting 
Section" is when Les holds all the strings down at ther same 
fret, and uses his right hand in a "patting of sorts"  He pats 
all four strings, but I wrote it like that to give the 
approximate pitch differences.  The main riff variant is used 
sometimes.
	For those of us who want a basic sounding version, check out the easy
version.  If you aren't that good, or you have to sing while plaing, or you
decide to bake lasagne while you're playing, etc. play this if you think it 
sounds good.  Be sure to boost the treble, though.
