  		I can play it without a retune!!   
My mate Ant asked me how you play the  
weird guitar parts following my version  
of the chords-just worked it out.   
This isn't how Rick plays it but its the  
closest you can get without a retune. 
I love this song.  I've done enough tabs of it! 




h - hammer on  
p - pull off  
b - bend string  
r - release bend 
/ - slide up 
\ - slide down 
v or ~ - vibrato  
t - right hand tap 
x - play 'note' with heavy damping

Now that I've made it with you
