Title: What's Up

That is a very easy song...there are 2 guitar play in the song:one acoustic
and one electric. The first make only a chords progression, the second make a
sorts of SOLO riff, but very easy. Listen the song to understand timing.
Here the riffs:

1? Guitar: Acoustic                              [Chords Progression:  A   Bm   D   Asus]
2? Guitar: Electric (with very little distorsion)[see the riff below]

25 years of my life and still
Tryin' to to get up that great big hill of
Hope, for a destination.
I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of
Man, for whatever that means.

And so I cry sometimes, when I'm lying in bed
just to get all out, what's in my head, then
I, I am feeling, a little peculiar.
And so I wake in the morning, and I step outside
And I take a deep breath, and I get real high, and
I, scream from the top of my lungs, "What's going on?"

And I say, "Hey yeah yeah hey, hey yeah yeah."
I said, "Hey, what's going on?"
And I say, "Hey yeah yeah hey, hey yeah yeah."
I said, "Hey, what's going on?"

Ooh ooh ooh.....

And I try, oh my god, do I try
I try all the time, in this institution.
And I pray, oh my god, do I pray
I pray every single day, for a revolution.

25 years of my life and still
Tryin' to get up that great big hill of
Hope, for a destination. . .

I think that at the start of the Verse Riff it's actually :
