*This intro is really a bass line, just arranged for guitar (it sounds lower than written).

Okay, now the above riff can be played on bass or on a guitar.  Should you choose
to play it on guitar then that’s what you play x10.  If you play it on bass, then
the guitar will play Riff B (below) while the bass plays Riff A.  Either way is fine.
Listen to the song to know when to play Riff B.

*Once again, this riff is bass arranged for guitar.

Right.  So now we find ourselves at the same fork in the road as “Settle For Nothing.”
You can choose to play Riff A x4 on the guitar throughout the Verse as well, or you
can play it on bass and play Riff B on guitar.  Your choice.  Timing can be a bitch.

Solo B  
*The bass continues to play Riffs B and C, and the guitar goes off on some
crazy-ass solo with a harmonizer and some other scratchy effects, which,
I'm sorry to say, I don't know.  It sounds random.  Feel free to improve.
