Song is in Key of D so Blues Runs in B work great. Matter of fact B runs
mixed with a little D work good together. I have good luck with B runs.

Note: Buck plays smoothly fast, so get the jist of the song as tabbed and
bend a few notes, hammer on a few and play it smoothly. It is not that easy
to tab this song with feeling. I hope you listen and enjoy.

We used to practice Bm A G F#sus4 F# Bm A G A progressions while playing
the Runs, Blues licks in B and D over it just to get the feel.
