                Tuning: Standard [EADGBE]

This tab is 100% perfect.  This is how he plays it on the album, on AOL sessions, and
in concert.  Nobody got the bridge right, and nobody nailed the ending solo either.
There is *NO CAPO* for this song!  It’s a basic strum pattern followed throughout the
entire song, so once you get it down you’re good to go.  Pluck the first note of the
chord, finger-strum the chord *up* and then knock the chord (mute it). Jack uses this
in a ton of his songs.
