The Guitar follows the Bass line for the first section then goes
into more lead material. The bass follows the notes given below
with a few minor slide techniques. Sorry if its a bit disjointed,
this is my first attempt at transcribing anything. I think its
pretty workable though. What can I say ... Great Song - One of
there Best! Feel free to add to or amend!

Prelude: This is probably keyboard NOVATION BASS STATION
         but here is what it would look like with guitar

Interlude:  One guitar playing a slightly muted A chord diagramA augmentedA power chord for a few bars.
Another guitar picking between the 5th fret on the A chord diagramBB string and the 2nd fret
on the A chord diagramG+G string. Or alternatively use the intro chord above if using one guitar.

There is another lead here too, a little way into the above which goes
something like this: (Don't quote me) Get some good headphones to listen out for it.

     A chord diagramA augmentedA|---5-----------7--------------------------------
     A chord diagramD MajorD|---5-----------7--------------------------------
