here and I’ll get back to you.


It's mostly fifth chords ( chords with no 3rd ) or power chords. The
guitar solos are based on the Blues pentatonic scale in the key of E. 
Billy likes to play pinch harmonics, practice playing them and it will
help you to play a bit like him.  



Tuning: EADGBe

| h  hammer-on
