The Mule by Deep Purple, on album Made In Japan.

Submitted by Kelsey Terhorst.

Tuning- EADGBE

Symbols: / = slide up
\ = slide down
h = hammer on
p = pull off
~ = let ring

I'm not sure this is entirely correct because I'm hearing it on Made In Japan, the live 
but I'll do my best. YOU HAVE TO READ THE TEXT AS YOU GO ALONG!

Intro:

E|--------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------3~------------------|
G|-2-----0h2p0-0h2p0---2~-2~--2-2h4p2---------|
D|-2--0h2-----2-----2--2~-0~--0-0~---2p0--2~--|
A|-0~------------------0~---------------2-0~--|
E|--------------------------------------------|

And after that you just do triplets with the A chord until the awesome main riff comes in:

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------11-12-11-12-12/14-14/17~--17h18p17h18p17h18p17~---\----/17-16h17p16-|
A|-12-14---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|14-16-14h16p14-12-14-12-11-12-11-------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------12-10~----9h10p9-9-7-7/12~----|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

Then you go back to an A chord.

After the second time there's a chord progression when the lyrics start. It goes A B D 
and here's what it looks like:

   A     B     D     A
E|-------------2~----------|
B|-2~----4~----3~----2~----|
G|-2~----4~----2~----2~----|
D|-2~----4~----0~----2~----|
A|-0~----2~----------0~----|
E|-------------------------|

Then go to a riff that's just the A chord without the B string.

Riff 2:

E|---|
B|---|
G|-2-|
D|-2-|
A|-0-|
E|---|

And there's a drum solo after that, and there's a part during the drum solo that goes 
this and it's really fast:

Riff 3:

E|-------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------|
G|-------------2-------0---------|
D|-------2-4-2---2-4-2---2---2---|
A|-0-0-4-------------------4---0-|
E|-------------------------------|

And then it does it one string higher.

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

And then they do a little thing like this:

Riff 4:

E|----------------------------------------------3~-------------|
B|---4~------4-----------------------------2~---0~-------------|
G|---3~------3-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-2~---0~---3~---2~---|
D|---1~------1-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-2~---0~---4~---3~---|
A|-0-----------3---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-0~---2~---4~---3~---|
E|----------------------------------------------3~---2~---1~---|

Then you go back to the intro and then play some A chords. After that you go to the main riff.

And last, you do the fifth riff, which is GGGGG A~ and you do that a couple times.

So here's the order:

Intro Riff
A Chord Triplets
Main Riff
Riff 2
Drum Solo
Riff 3
Riff 4
Intro Riff
A Chord Triplets
Main Riff
Riff 5

I hope you enjoy.
