Life in the Fast Lane (Eagles)

INTRO:


E---------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------
G-----2---0--------------------2---0----------
D-0^2---2---2p0------------0^2---2---2p0------
A---------------0------------------------0----
E-----------------3-0----------------------3--

B----------------------------------------
G-----2---0---------------2---0----------
D-0^2---2---2p0-------0^2---2---2p0------
A---------------0-------------------0----
E-----------------3-0-----------------3--

The difference between the two above riffs is that the first has a break in
it (the big space) and the second is continuous.

however,if you want to play the riff with some feeling
and sound..then I suggest neither of the above are right..
This is how I do it..in the key of E! (chords of the song are E/A/B
basically)

 E----------------------------------|---------------------------
 B----------------------------------|---------------------------
 G----------------------------------|---------------------------
 D------7---5~----------------------|------7---5~---------------
 A--5^7---7-----7p5-----------------|--5^7---7----7p5-----------
 E-------------------7--3~--0-------|------------------7--3~.---
                            ^^^
where ~ stands for a microtone bend(1/4)
and   . stands for a muted note
