here and I'll get back to you.


It seems people still want a tab of this song, so here's my attempt.
It's mostly fifth chords ( chords with no 3rd ) or power chords. The
guitar solos are based on the blues pentatonic scale in the key of E. 
Hope you like it.  I might tab the solos later. 


Tuning: EADGBe

| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
