Tabbed by Joakim Nordin. [fjodor@mindless.com]
This is how I play it (basicly, I iprovise alot).
This is the main structure of the song, and if you listen
to the song there's ALOT of variations which makes this a
good tune to practise some improvisation on.
For this very reason, I haven't tabbed it EXACTLY as it's played.
Allso, I might have missed the number of times each part is played,
so listen for it and you should have no problems.

Clearly wrong. The tab is wrong, you will notice if you play along with the record. Actual Riff starts with an E, not a C.
