Notes:

Standard Tuning

If you like using your ring finger, don't play this song.  It remains parked
on the b string 3rd fret most of the song :-).  This song is pretty easy to
play (that's why I like it).

On Riff 3, the rhythm is played mostly on the G and B strings.

The solo is, of course, quite simple and could be played anywhere on the neck.
I don't know where Alex plays this or if the slides are correct.  Step in, you
Gurus.

Since the guitar is pretty heavily distorted in this song, what I hear may not
be exactly what Alex plays, but it sounds pretty good.

I'm not that good with timing and song layout in tab format, so any of you who
would like to rearrange this one, by all means, have at it!

I'm sure that I've missed some other things in the song, but I wanted to get it
out there so that all you tabbers can help me out.
