Hey everyone,

SCC plays a Dobro on this song which helps give the acoustic part that
deep sound with a lot of attack.  It is also tuned down 1/2 step.

Chords (in no particular order):

Eb--0-----------------------0-------0-------0-------0-------0----------
Bb--0-----------------------0-------0-------0-------0-------0----------
Gb--9-------5-------7-------8-------6-------6-------4-------1-------4--
Db--9-------5-------7-------9-------6-------7-------5-------2-------4--
Ab--7-------3-------5-------9-------4-------7-------5-------2-------2--
Eb--------------------------x---------------5-------3-------0----------
  Ebii	B*	  Db*     Bb	C	  Ab	    Gb	Eb	 Bb*
                                         (see note)      

* = no 3rd

NOTE: play the Ab note (index finger, 5th fret, low Eb string) only during
the main chord riff.  During the chorus, mute that string as on the Bb chord.
And, if you don't want to mute it, its obviously not that big a deal.  Just
have fun.

There is no acoustic in the intro, but if you want, you can play Ebii.

Main Chord-Riff:

After chorus, Acousitc solo:
(lots of muting, lots of attack, lots of sneaky fills)

	v v   left hand muting               v v  v ^  v
Eb----x-x------etc. here-------------------x-x--0-0--0---
