Notes:

Riffs 4 and 5 are played as backing on the First and Last and Always
disc, and they're also played by a keyboard.  However, on the
"Knocking on Heaven's Door" bootleg, at least, the lead guitar plays
them.  If you only have one guitar and no keyboard, they add a little
variety to an otherwise very repetivitve song.  (If you listen closely
to the studio version, you can pick up the rhythm.)

Bass riff (a) is what's actually played.  However, Frank does the
vocals as well as bass, and riff (a) is a little too complicated to
play while singing, so he plays (a) when he's not singing, and
switched between (b) and (c) when he is.  I'm too busy with the guitar
to pay attention to which he plays when.


Here's how I play it:

Intro:
1  1  2  3a 3b 3a 3c

1  1  2  3a 3b 3a 3c

1  1  2  3a 3b 3a 3b

4  4  4  5

1  1  2  3a 3b 3a 3c

1  1  2  3a 3b 3a 3c

1  1  2  3a 3b 3a 3b 3a 3b 3a 3b

4  4  4  5

6 (or repeat 4 4 4 5 to fade)
