This song is highly improvisational, which in this case means that Jack uses a basic 
of riffs and progressions that he picks at, playing only some of the notes a given
time around. Tabbing each would be pointless (since even he doesn't play it the same
way twice), so what I've done is to tab each recurring in its entirety and leave the
variation up to you.

INTRO: Parenthesis are not ghost notes, but notes only sometimes included in the progression
