People learning this song should take into account that Valensi does upstrokes to get the sound....the downstroke his muted, then he pulls his hand getting the sound, e-mail me if someone wants an accurate version.

Yeah this version is similar but it is wrong - the real intro is a basic d7 -then he takes his finger off of the E string,
the verse -isnt those chords - Valensi plays each note individually, on the A string - on the 9th fret which is an F: from there he goes to an E to a D: F-F-F-F-E-E-E-E-F-F-F-F-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-D-D-D-D-E-E-E-E-D-D-D-D:
Hammond plays the Chords through it all which is just a simple D - G
