Easy to play and fun. Since there's basically only two riffs playing all the 
way through, you have to add a few variations to spice it up. "Less is more"
in this song, though.

Enjoy.

Note: On my recording, this song is quite flat (about halfway between being in
Eb and E). I've written it out in E, but you might want to transpose.
