Most people have almost exactly right but the intro and the main part.
Also if you watch them live Tony always plays on the E and A string just really high.


NOTE:Before you start to play this you MUST listen to the song again.
otherwise you won't be able to hear how it REALLY sounds.


Key:
b=bend 1/2 step
B=bend 1 step
^=bend 1 1/2 step
r=return bend
/=slide up
\=slide down
h=hammer
p=pull off
