This tab is largely based on the live version of the song, which features guitarists
Gerry Leonard and Earl Slick. There's also lots of keyboard textures provided by Mike Garson,
Catherine Russell and Mark Plati, but they can be easily arranged from the song's chords.

During the intro, Gerry Leonard creates a loop using these three riffs on top of each other:

e--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B---9---------8---------9---------8---------9---------8----11--------------|
G--------8---------8---------8---------8---------8--------------8--10--8---|
D-----11---11---11---11---11---11---11---11---11---11---11-----------------|
A--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e---9---8-------------------------|
B----------9---8---9----8--11-----|
G---------------------------------|
D---------------------------------|

E---------------------------------|

e-----------------------------|
B-----------------------------|
G-----------------------------|
D---3---3---3---3---3---3-----|
A-----6---6---6---6---6---6---|
E-----------------------------|


At "made for a real world" Earl Slick comes in with a distorted riff, with lots of feedback:

e-------------------|-----------|-------------------|
B-------------------|-----------|-------------------|
G-------------------|-----------|-------------------|
D-------------------|---(x 4)---|-------------------|
A-------------------|-----------|-------------------|
E---3h4-4-4-3h4-4---|-----------|---1---3---1---3---|

The same riff is repeated at "have I stared too long?"

At the end, two measures after the clapping begins, Slick finishes his part with four
strums on a Ab chord, also with lots of feedback.

Leonard then comes in with this riff (with a capo on the 2nd fret):

e---------------2----------------1---|
B-------0---0------------0---0-------|
G-----3---3---3--------3---3---3-----|
D---4----------------3---------------|
A------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------|

He plays around with this riff and creates a new loop from it. As the bands end the
song, he records part of his intro sequence over it, dissolving the loop in distortion and
effects before concluding the song.

e--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B---9---------8---------9---------8---------9---------9----11--------------|
G--------8---------8---------8---------8---------8--------------8--10--8---|
D-----11---11---11---11---11---11---11---11---11---11---11-----------------|
