This song is so cool it's beyond belief. It just happened to come up on the CD I'm playing right now and I thought I'd take a chance it might be here.

Dead on right with the chords. And with only 4 fairly easy chords, I'm sure transposing would be no problem for any level of player.

A "heavy metal/hard rock" style song from The Imperials in the mid 70's no less. I saw them do this song at a concert in the mid 80's in Fort Worth and it rocked the house like nobody's business. I'd love to see this song make a comeback.

Try a Gm7 instead of Gm. Especially important on the muted chords on the bridge. Use to play this in a band back in college...just after we left the Ark.

Suggest using a B on the 7th fret instead of Gm, too.

Oops! Meant Bb on 6th.

OK, let me explain: use Gm7 on the lower rhythm guitar instead of Gm throughout.
And, on the second guitar--playing the arpeggios--I saw the original recording guitarist play this in concert. He went up to a Bb on the 6th fret while the lower guitar stayed on Gm7 on the 3rd fret (second measure of the song as the Imperials recorded it). Bb blends perfectly with the first guitar playing Gm7 on the 3rd fret. Vary the Bb to taste. The power chords are strictly G Gm7 F C and back to G.

i have to say... this song was way ahead of its time ! i listened to this back when it was new ( i was around 14 at the time).. incredible song !! i want to play this onstage at my church ! and i'm not even that good of a guitar player yet.

I have to agree with deewoody, this was a song before its time, it would be cool to see re-make of it. I've done it before at church, close to the original version(acoustic tho), now I'm experminting with it in the key of D with E dropped to D. Couple of other changes too. It's still in the works.
