This is the last song on 5 Man Acoustical Jam, and just shows you
what a good tune you can make with completely nil technical
difficulty.
  Tommy tunes normally, and Frank plays slide with open E (EBEG#BE)
tuning. Brian's bass line is VERY repetitive, but utterly essential.
  The final (That's all folks) section I have transcribed with Tommy
playing chords, and Frank playing lead, but since it's quite tricky
to play the lead with a slide on your finger, Tommy could well be
doing it (and I'm imagining the chords). Decide for yourselves.
  I apologize for any confusion Tommy's part may cause-I have
written some bars as chords with the rhythnm shown, and others with
full tablature, and others still with both. I know it's very
unconventional, but it's both lazy and complete , giving both the
notes and the rhythm
