Run Rudolf run - Chuck Berry

The line up is bass drums guitar with a second guitar  (probably Chuck B. multi tracked) 
adding emphasis to the backing eight beat boogie - what you hear is the combined 
"broken" rhythm   
For example:
Guitar 1: boogie 8 to bar        1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 
Guitar 2:                          & 2   3    
Combined rhythm                  b B B b B b b b

Two examples of the over dubbed guitar are tabbed.
