I tab this as I play it, with the low E always ringin'.

You, however, can choose not to play it, as in the elec

version, if you don't like it. I think it gives a fuller sound.

That's the basic verse riff. If you can play the

song elec, you can figure out the variations based

on what I've tabbed. The whole song and all the

changes of the above basic riff would be quite alot of

tab...

Again, if you know the elec (real) version, you can

pick out the changes so I'm not gonna tab every detail.
