Okay y'all...  This here's a beautiful old-school BNL tune, and I'm sick of checking out bum tabs
for it.  So here it is, straight up.  It's not all that easy, but just run through the main riff
a million times, and you'll get it.  Game on.

Feel free to send me corrections or questions, and good luck!  PEACE!!!

This is very well done. Really, really close, and much better than other versions that have capo on 2nd fret this one is correct. Nice job.

Close, but not dead on. There are several parts that are off a bit, but a guitarist can get the general feel of how the song is played.
