"Rock" section:

On the original record this section is in 4/4
(beats marked below the staves), but triplets
dominate the lead tune creating an alternate
6/4 meter marked below the staves. You can simplify
this part by playing only every second 4/4 (D) chords
(later: 'A' bass). It's easier to learn this section
with 6/4 meter in mind.

Some parts of this arrangement are hard to play, or require tricky fingering.
The outro is easier, if you are not advanced player, start with that.
This arrangement can be modified/simplified almost anywhere if you feel
it's easier for you.
