like:

FILL 
This is played before 2nd verse and is also the rhythm for the slide 
guitar lead. Basically, we're back to the D, C, G progression... with a 
twist:

|-------------------------------|----------------|-0h3-3--3-\-1-----|

*3 NB: This bar has a distorted guitar playing the same chords.



Back to verse, with a more prominent overdriven guitar playing the 
basically the same chords as the initial verse riff. Then to Riff Two 
again . . . then the dreaded slide guitar.



SLIDE LEAD
If there is a note in brackets/parentheses after or before a slide, this 
means don't pick the note, just slide to it (a legato slide). Make all 
these slides as long and slow as possible (or use a slide, I suppose).

This is the general idea. There variations on each repeat.


So, I think all the components to play the song are here. Just put 'em 
all in the right order.

The tune finishes on a D.
