The second time this section is played, the notes played on ’the beats’ in
each bar (there are 4) are emphasised.

Notes

TAB Key

        b - bend a semitone
        X - mute with palm of hand
        U - upstroke
        A chord diagramD MajorD - downstroke

This is mainly a 2 guitar song. Guitar1 is in the right stereo channel
and guitar24 is in the left. Guitar2 has a cleaner sound than guitar1.

This song is a straight forward boogie kind of thing in the key of G. The
verses centre around A chord diagramG+G and C, and the chorus’ centre around A chord diagramE5E5 and A5. I was a
bit of a ’train spotter’ and tried to include all the rhythmic variations (as
well as ascii tab allows) because it sounds boring just played with a
straight shuffle feel.

The guitar solo has guitar1 picking out the melody, guitar2 playing the backing
chords and guitar3 playing a short, descending, ’walking bassline’ sequence.
Guitars 1 and 3 can be included as one part quite easily but the way all the
notes are left ringing I would say there are 2 guitars on the record here.

The timings between the 2 guitars, as written above, should be pretty accurate
but check the record for details.

The choruses and ’Do Do’ sections are filled out with an Organ (and handclaps)
