CheapTrick directory? :)

Here is the best I can do for the title track for Cheap Trick's "Dream Police"
album. I can't get the last line of the chorus, so I had to guess, it could be
wrong. Other points where I may have fucked up:

I have no idea what the chords are behind the verse. I got the damn solo, 
which is over the verse progression, but for the life of me I can't get the
chords. I can't even figure out the bassline.

The "solo" section (which reminds ME a lot of the breakdown in Springsteen's
"Born to Run") was REALLY hard to get. The orchestra/synthesizer really 
screwed me up, so what I have may be right, but it won't sound like it unless
you play with the album or transcribe the synth parts. You can do that your
own damn self. :) Also, the time signature alternates between 4/4 (the 
signature of the rest of the song) and 3/4. I tried to make it clear where 
the changes occur.

The part under the line "They're looking for me" may only be the bass, but I
put it as a guitar part, because it's so damn cool.

Other than that, enjoy. I think that this should be played on a Les Paul. My
strat doesn't give me nearly enough bottom on this one, supporting my 
conclusion that FOR ME, strats are better lead instruments and Pauls are
better for rhythm. But to each his or her own.

Written by Rick Nielson?

Notation:
s - sixteenth note
e - eighth note
q - quarter note
h - half note
w - whole note
{~3~} - the only way I can think of notating a triplet
. - play note for one and a half times the value before it (just like a dot in 
     standard notation)
^ - ties two note lengths together
NOTE LENGTHS IN CAPITAL LETTERS MEAN REST FOR THAT VALUE OF TIME!
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
h - hammer-on
p - pull-off

(itty-bitty 2-beat drum fill)
