What can I say.....As usual Tom Scholz lays down multiple
guitar tracks and layers his riffs dripping with harmony.   

Of course, it helps if you have all the SR&D equipment
to give you that Boston sound.  ;)

(My comments)
(1:24)  Shows the time line in the song where tab matches.

b = bent full note -the number in parenthesis is what you
 should bend up to
p = pull off
h = hammer on
V = downward picking (listed above the fret board)
^ = upward picking (listed above the fret board)
~ = hand vibrato (shake that string :-)
< = volume pan/swell (he is using a volume pedal)
[] = artificial harmonic

^V^V^ = tremolo (use your whammy)  :P

>Oooooh Ahhhh< = lyrics 

Intro
	>Oooooh....<

               Lead Guitar
(intro chord here - every so slightly palm muted barre chord)
(gives you that thumpy/chunky sound)
