There is a riff played along with the "B" chord in the intro and verses
that I can't, for the life of me, play so it sounds EXACTLY like the
record, but below is an attempt that sounds close. The tab below is played
in ALL the verses in the song, as well as during the "B" chord in the

chorus. Here goes:

b=bend (3b4 means bend the string at the 3rd fret to make the note that
the string would make if it was played at the 4th fret without bending.)

[VERSE 1 repeat]

[Pre-chorus repeat]

[Chorus repeat]

Here, song goes to an "A", then starts alternating between "F#" and "E",
then Liam starts singing "It's just rock and roll" and the alternation
between "F# and "E" starts getting faster, and that's the end of the song.
