First ever post here - There are not very many Cheap Trick guitar tab's on here, so I thought I would post the main guitar riff used for the intro and verse of this song, as follows (the tab posted above is for bass):

A ---0--0--------------0--3--0-------------------------------|

On the chorus chords posted above, you play the E chord 5 times rapidly (I do so barring at the 7th fret to get a high E), then the D once, then the A 5 times rapidly, then the D once again, and then repeat, 4 times total.

For the bridge, similarly, do the B chord 5 times rapidly, then A once, repeat that, then flip it to play the A repeatedly into the B - If you listen to the song and get the timing, it is pretty easy.

Sorry, the last part of my intro riff tab above has a typo, it should just be two D chords at the end (got my 2's and 3's flipped):

A ---0--0--------------0--3--0-------------------------------|
