The following phrase also reappears a lot, usually with
leads played over it.  The rhythm shown here may not be
exactly right, but it sounds okay (esp. with the leads)

E-|--0---0-0---1---1-1-1-1-1-1--|--3---3-3---3---3-3-3-3-3-3---|
B-|--1---1-1---1---1-1-1-1-1-1--|--3---3-3---3---3-3-3-3-3-3---|

Incorporate the following licks in as necessary,
these two will be used a lot in this song:

E-|-----------12--15s17vvvvvvvv---|
B-|--------13---------------------|
G-|--12b14------------------------|
D-|-------------------------------|
A-|-------------------------------|
E-|-------------------------------|

E-|------------15------------15-----------------------|
B-|--13p12-13------13p12-13------13p12-13p12----------|
G-|-------------------------------------------12vvv---|
D-|---------------------------------------------------|
A-|---------------------------------------------------|
E-|---------------------------------------------------|

Later, over the top of one of the picking patterns during
a verse you get the following lead:

E-|-------------------------------|
B-|-----------12vv--10vv----------|  This same lead appears
G-|--------13-------------9vv-----|  at other times, sometimes
D-|-----14------------------------|  leaving out the last two
A-|--14---------------------------|  notes, others leaving out
E-|-------------------------------|  the last one.

Just before the solo in the middle of the song, the progression
changes from the   Am F G   to   Am G F .  It's a small change,
but very noticable.  It changes back to the  Am F G right at the
end of the solo.

Solo:
   I'll start the solo from where the common lead lick starts to
   change.  For a few seconds, two guitars will be playing.  This
   probably isn't exactly right either, so if anyone wants to
   post corrections....

     Am        G                  F    (etc.)

Just before the fade on the end, there is and additional
lick between the two common ones shown earlier.  The whole
phrase goes something like this:

E-|-----------15------------15----------------------------------------------|
