                     Lynyrd Skynyrd
                   Sweet Home Alabama

This is in the key of G , you need a strat with just a slight
bit of distortion , well more a slight bit of gain (PLEASE DO NOT
PUT LOADS OF DISTORTION ON!) , The trickiest part if muting the ringing
strings and also putting in the rhythmic muted clicks.

The track features mainly basic chord shapes which are held while
using a picking action , anyway lets get on with it.

     ( this is the first solo , on both versions , but the single
      doesn't include the second longer solo , so i'm not going to!)

Okay if you want i'll let you put a little bit more distortion on
to hide you mistakes now, it might also make the solo have a little
more impact to
