It took me awhile to make this tab with. Fool with the sound a little bit. IF you play 
just straight up it may not sound the best. Please… I put a lot of effort into this tab… 
you criticize me make your tab of this. Hope you Enjoy! And remember when you 
play and if a note doesn’t sound right just NICELY post a correction. This is all ear transcribed.

Tuning: Standard with a clean and dry sound.

Rhythm : This gets a bit tricky. He scratches around a lot here so I’m just going 
to add 
scratches where I think it should go. Remember to use effects(just a little .. don’t 
to drown out Les’ Sound) This is a second guitar. Play this through the whole 
song. There is also a chord progression on the tape he used to play the 
background. The chord are at the bottom.

Les’ Part: He plays this during the other part listen to song for timing.*THS IS NOT THE 
THAT REPEATS!!!!* NOTE* THE  “|” stands for the end of that little beat. Listen to the 
and you’ll understand.
