Easy to play and fun. Since there's basically only two riffs playing all the

way through, you have to add a few variations to spice it up. "Less is more"

in this song, though.

 

Enjoy.

 

Note: On my recording, this song is quite flat (about halfway between being in

Eb and E). I've written it out in E, but you might want to transpose.
