Tom Petty's cover of Thunderclap Newman's "something in the air". I learned this
song a couple months ago and by listening to the album I know it is about 100% correct.
Great song and easy.  Enjoy

The interlude part is actually really easy to play if you set up your fingers right. Use your third finger on your second string, then your first finger on the third string. This leaves your second finger to push the two frets on the fifth string.
