Well, this is by no means complete TAB, but it's such fun just to play the intro that I figured I'd post it. Keith probably used some wierd tuning and played it completely different! You might have to do some muting on that funny chord.

 

Also, I have no idea what the "real" key is on the record.

Opening riff:

In the meantime, here's some other chords to try on that song.

 

Hope you like them...

Should be:

 

 

 

-|-----------------x---x-----------------------------------------------

 

-|-----------------15--14-----------------------------------------------

 

-|-----------------14--14-----------------------------------------------

 

-|-----------------14--14--5--7--7--9--9*-7--7--9-----------------------

 

-|--5--7--7--9--7--xx--xx--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5-----------------------

 

-|--5--5--5--5--5--xx--xx-----------------------------------------------

 

 

 

*This '9' is sometimes a '5' on the live version.

-|----xx--xx----------5---5---5---5--5----5----5---5-------

 

 

 

The 'A' chord (you're playing the 1-5-8 version with no 3rd --

 

not major or minor) is actually two chords, a suspension that

 

resolves to the major -- played at the 12th fret (drag).

 

 

 

Once it gets to the break, there's the two chord da Daahh da Daahh

 

stuff... those chords are

 

 

 

------------------

 

------7-----------

 

------7------5h6-- (Do various riffs here)

 

------7------5----

 

---7--5---7--7----

 

---5--5---5--5----

 

 

 

The 5'th fret on the D string is a min 7 interval making the

 

major a dominant 7. The 5h6 is a hammer-on (gives it that

 

bluesy feel).
