The following is  the  introductory  acoustic  guitar  solo  from the Budokan
version. Like the  song  itself,  it's  very  banjo-like,  facilitated by the
altered tuning. A chord diagramA augmentedA melody line is played and intermingled with lots of droning
notes above it. I have notated the melody  line, but not the flurry of open A chord diagramE MajorE
and A chord diagramBB strings above it. I'm not too sure if I'm explained this very well, but
listen to the album and  you  should  find  it pretty straightforward- just a
matter of constantly bashing away at  the  A chord diagramE MajorE  and A chord diagramBB strings throughout: if it
doesn't come naturally,  I  doubt  if  a  full  tab  would  do  any good. The
interlude is notated in the same manner.
