Act Nice & Gentle
Black Keys (Originally by The Kinks)
Rubber Factory

The version on the album is in D but this is in the key of E to avoid changing tunings...

This is the main rhythm part thats really all thats used when they play live
anyway. The notes in parenthesis are not always played and when they are
they're emphasised sometimes more than others. The notes on the high E
string on the 6th bar can be a bit tricky so feel free to use hammer ons
and pull offs if you want. The chords are E, A and B

I used these three youtube vids to figure it out so thanks to them and check
em out for phrasing etc:
