hmm...I\'ve always played this capo\'d on the 2nd, then just chord shapes to match the barre chords indicated apart from the link and the chorus...on the \"less of getting clever with me\" it sounds right to me on a capo 2nd fret, with chord shapes for A G D Am C ...and the \"blinded by the sun\" bit sounds right as capo 2nd Am F C E

Glad for the help on the solo\'s though they\'ve been driving me crazy!

absolutely perfect, only one fault. i've not actually learnt it, but i've played it slowly and it all sounds great, apart from that E in the chorus, i agree with tezhall about the capo 2. but very well done mate :)
