Tabbed by: Dylan Cooke

None of the tabs were the way I played this song so I decided to tab it
I have watched this video (the one from the family jewels DVD, where Angus
blows up at the end) millions of times and I quite certain that 
This is how Angus plays it

This is the exact progression of the song

<<<<< = Pick Scrape upwards 
h = Hammer On

Then there is a little solo at the end witch you can get 
From another tab

At the very end there is the chord that AC/DC ends 
Lots of their songs with, witch is
E Chord
