INTRO: 
 
Gtr II (Adrian) 
I'll show the picking pattern for the three chords used in 
the backing to the solo. I'll show the chord changes with the 
solo. 
Played with a 3/4 time feel.

"Quiet" bit with "Take a Look..." 
I'll try and show the basic idea. Finger the open Am and try to 
follow the melody by lifting your finger on 2nd string. Then pick 
the Fmaj7 chord anyway you want.

Main Verse Riff: 
Similar idea to the previous part except you follow the melody 
on the 3rd string. When muting the strings and strumming between 
the parts shown lift your 3rd or 4th finger off the 3rd string, 
i.e. don't hold the melody notes down,just keep the A power chord 
fingered. Play the extended notes with upstrokes to emphasise the 
melody.

SOLO'S: 
Transcribing solo's is not my strong point but you should the 
main ideas from the following. These are the album solo's. 
Some of fast licks, especially Dave's are more approximations 
than anything else.
