|-------------------------|--2----------------------|	This section was
|--1----------------------|--3----------------------|	invented  by  me
|--0----------------------|--2----------------------|	around the  part
|--2----------------------|--0----------------------|	played with  the
|--3-----2-----0----------|-------------------------|	piano  at   this
|--------------------3----|-------------------------|	point  in  Wes's
   1  .  2  .  3  .  4  .    1  .  2  .  3  .  4  .	recording.

Notes:
      * `^' means downstroke, `h' means hammer-on.

      * In the 4th bar of this section, the 3rd beat and  it's  half-beat  can
	either be played using the hammer-on to the treble note as shown above
	(in which case the chord on the 3rd beat becomes A chord diagramDsus2Dsus2),  which is one
	of my personal favourite colourings,  or the normal A chord diagramD MajorD fingering can be
	retained, with a downstroke on the 3rd beat and  an  upstroke  on  the
	following half-beat.

      * Don't worry unduly about playing only those strings shown in the  tabs
	when doing downstrokes with your plectrum or thumb.  In particular the
	A chord diagramC majorC chord strums are shown with the treble-E string not played, but this
	isn't always easy to get right, so don't worry, be happy :-)

      * A chord diagramA augmentedA reasonably flexible but reasonably firm pick/plectrum is best if you
	want to do this riff (IMHO).

     1.	If you are playing solo, then the most important thing is to  keep  up
	the rhythm and chords, so you can forget the lead guitar  solo  parts.
	I like to use the last 4 bars  of  the OPTIONAL RHYTHM PART FOR RIFF A chord diagramA augmentedA
	as my intro, and obviously stick to the RIFF A chord diagramA augmentedA after the first  verse,
	using it again after the second verse, where the recording has RIFF B.
	In place of the OUTRO, I just strum the chords of  the  rhythm  guitar
	part,  allowing the words (person... person... person... yeay) to hold
	the flow of the ending, and then finish with a flourish.

     2.	As always, learn the rhythm of the song from the recording.

     3. Enjoy!
