Intro:
Repeat 2x
|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|
|-----------------------7--9-|
|----------------5-6-7--7--9-|
|----------5-6-7--------5--7-|
|--4-5-6-7-------------------|

Main Riff:
Palm mutes while holding the fingering for the E power chord. Should just 
come naturally. This is basically Ted's main riff part, along with Derek St.
 Holmes rhythm part through most of the song.
|------------------------------------------------------|

At about 1:25 on the recording I reference (COME ON!!! COME ON!!!) it goes into 
a B-A-B-A-B blues rhythm riff of sorts, and again later on in the song:
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|-9-9-11-9-11-12---7-7-9-7-9-10--|
|-7-7-7--7-7--7----5-5-5-5-5-5---|

If you're familiar with Call of the Wild (Ted Nugent & the Amboy Dukes, '74), it's a similar 
groove here, although what I have tabbed out is roughly what I can hear in the background.


Breakdown before main riff repeats:
|----------------------|
|----------------------|
|--7--\5-----5---\4----|
|--7--\5-----5---\4----|
|--9--\7-----7---\2----|
|----------------------|


Song ends on a Hendrix chord, E7(#9), followed by a few fills on the E scale.

|---|
|-8-|
|-7-|
|-6-|
|-7-|
|---|

I don't have the skill nor the time to tab out the more complex solos,
 but it is in E, so use the E pentatonic scale past the twelfth fret to 
achieve the effect. If you have any questions, comments, or revisions, email
 me at grant.honsowetz@yahoo.com for a speedy reply. 

 *11/28/13 edits: There's several other sites/contributors that copypasted this 
directly and cut my name out(I'm looking at you, Songsterr). While it's U-G's at 
the end of the day, I'd like everyone to know that this is the original right here.

Added the "breakdown" section, a few other minor fixes and the end chord, hope it helps.
