                (Live)
live at slane castle

This jam is pretty amazing, and the other tab had some mistakes and didn't have the solo, 
so I decided to write out the whole song. This should be accurate. 
I've tried to show some of the timing but you'll have to listen to the song 
to get it perfect.
