It follows the line of the harp.

Overdubs:

With exception of the first verse the following lick is played over
the D-chord in progression I:

      I make a small bar for the interval on the 12th position.
      I fret the other two intervals with my ringfinger on the
      g-string and my middlefinger on the b-string and shift my
      lefthand from position 13 to 10 and back.

The second overdub is played over the ending of the song

Ricks part
==========

Verse:
. means short (as always), - means as long as possible.
In other words, the first stroke (which has the longest time-value)
has to be played short, while you'll let the second stroke (which
has the shortest time-value) ring until the next stroke. I hope this
isn't confusing. Maybe you should have take a look at the notes I made
about the rhythm-guitar in Rockin' All Over The World.

    1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +   For the chord,
E||-------------------------|------------------------| make a bar and
B||*------------------------|------------------------| use your middle-

Play the third verse as the first but without the repetition and
replace the last two bars by:

  1  + +  2  + +  3  + +  4  + +   1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +

Bars 3 and 4 and bars 7 and 8 of the progression under the other
verses differ from the first verse. The pattern of the D-chord
follows the harp there. So in the other verses replace them by:

  1  + +  2  + +  3  + +  4  + +
E|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------|
G|11---11---------11---11------11-|

A|15---15-15---14-12---12-14---12-|
E|10---10-10---10-10---10-10---10-|



Solo:

For the solo-backing play progression II (you can find it under
"chords and rhythm") and use the same boogie patterns as for the
verses.

Last two verses:

Play the last two verses as the first verse but replace the last
three bars by:

  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + + 
E|------------------------|------------------------|
B|------------------------|---*3-3-----3-----3-----|

                              *grab this D-chord with your pinky
                               on the B-string and your middlefinger
  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +      on the G-string. This enables you to
E|------------------------|    play the bassline with your ring- and
B|1-----8---7-------------|    indexfinger.
G|2-----6---5-------------|
D|0-----8---7-------------|
A|0-----6---5-------------|
