First off, US Stranger and afirocker00 are off topic. No one cares that you lost a bet and noo one needs to tell him off. If you have problems then e-mail eachother. I just wanted to say that the second guitar part played over the intro rythem is played in the high e and b strings on fret 13 and the harmonica solo can be played on a D-pentatonic scale. Just listen to the song and sound it out.
