                Let's start with the intro. Some piano parts are included - if you have no piano...

During the vocals we play a very soft rhythm guitar using downstrokes only:

D9
   Got me...

D9 G7                      Eb9 D9
      I c...

D9      A7
Got ...

  D9                        A9 G9
I ...

G9           A9 G9
   Bad love....
           D9
is ....

Short guitar break at 1:02 with a variation of our well known Blues starting riff, going 
to the root note at the high E-string and then back to the root note at the low E-string:

                                                                  (Bb9)(A9)

  Well I just can't stay
G9                D9
  no more on this third degree

At 1:23 a variation of the above theme, than starting the next verse. Chords are the 
and guitar fills between area again versions of the above theme.

At 2:41 we have a solo, all around the D minor Blues scale at the 10th fret. It starts like:

I-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|I
I-----------13/15-15-15~~~--13/15-13/15-13/15-13------------------------------13------|I
I--14-14-14--------------------------------------(14)rb12-10---------10-12/14---------|I

                                                              2:54

I------------10------------10------13---13--13---10-----------------------------------|I
I---------10----10-13b(15)---------12b--12b-12b-----10-----10-------------------------|I
I-12b(14)----------------------------------------------12b----12b-12-10----10---------|etc..-I
I-----------------------------------------------------------------------12------------|I
I-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|I
I-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|I

You now go on with the licks above. Remember to play fluid and clean, using small bends 
sometimes a major note. Build up and release tension, another short example from 3:35 
like:

I----13-15-17-15-17-15h17p15--13-15-13---------------|I
I-15-----------------------------------15-13-15~~~---|I
I----------------------------------------------------|I
I--------------------------------------------root----|I
I--------------------------------------------note----|I
I----------------------------------------------------|I
 3:35

The end is easy to figure out, a short lick up and down ending with the chords Eb9 / D9.
