Gave it a gander. It rough on a three string. But can be done. You would have to be a black belt in karate to keep up when he goes faster. Probably best to keep it at one speed. The main part of the song has a very fast Tda Tda Tda Tda rhythm. think of the T as a 16th note before the beat. The main riff starts by holding an 8th note. Then going directly into Tda Tda Tda Tda.

Songs main body. this / means to bend up.

go right back into the main body of the song.

I'll post more later. If you have any questions pleas let me know.

I should mention. This is the vid I got the song from.

If you want to play along he's in about G sharp.

If this isn't the right recording point me in the right direction and I"ll try again.

I gotta feature this!!!  Fantastic!

WOW !!!!.... Thank You Thank You Mr. Blue Rat !!!!!... that’s exactly what I’m looking for ... got the song in my head yesterday and just have to learn to play it .. can’t wait to get home from work to try it ... Thanks Again !!!

Wow, Thanks guys! Mike, please let me know if you have any questions. Shane, totally cool. Really looking forward to hearing both of you play this.

Sorry I haven't gotten to the rest of the song. The 'solo' spots are modified versions of what he plays wile he sings. Repeating the same notes with bends.

Be much better to hear Shane play it. I’ve been building for almost a year but just now started playing... right now my version sounds like a Long Haired Dalmatian rather than Long Haired Doney !!!!
