Richard Parfitt

Francis uses a normal standard tuning (E A D G B E) while Rick uses
an open G-tuning (D G D G B D) plus a capo on the second position
which makes it an open A-tuning (E A E A C# E). Drop your low E
two half steps lower to D. You can use your D-string (which is an
octave higher) to bring the string to the right pitch. Do the same
with your A-string. Drop the A-string two half steps to G and use the
G-string now to bring the string to the right pitch. The high
e-string has also to be dropped to d. Use again your D-string (an
octave lower now) to tune the high e-string to d. Now place a capo
(if you have one) on the second position. After you've placed the
capo you're guitar can be slightly out of tune again, so maybe you
have to adjust the tuning a bit.

3. Tabs


Rick:

Before you start you should have mastered the following staccato-
technique:

   1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +  
E |------------------------| The notes above the dots have to be
C#|------------------------| played shortly. You can obtain that
A |------------------------| by letting the pick rest on the strings
E |0---0-0---0-0---0-0---0-| right after you've played them (in
A |0---0-0---0-0---0-0---0-| starting position again, ready to play
E |------------------------| the next notes). The second string will
   .     .     .     .       be damped automatically by the righthand
                             indexfinger. Start slowly and gradually
                             build up speed.
You could also use the fingers of your lefthand ofcourse but many
times you'll need them for fretting the strings. But for bars like 
the following (which you will find among the tabs) you can use your
lefthand for damping:

   1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +  
E |------------------------|
C#|0---0-0---0-0---0-------|
A |0---0-0---0-0---0-----0-|
E |0---0-0---0-0---0-0h2-0-|
A |0---0-0---0-0---0-------|
E |------------------------|
   .     .     .    


               Main riff:
    + 4 + +    1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +  
E |---------||-------------------------|-------------------------||
C#|---------||*------------------------|------------------------*||
A |---5---3-||-------5-----3-----------|------5-----3-----3------||
E |---5---3-||-------5-----3-----------|------5-----3-----3------|| 4x
A |(0)------||*0---0-----0-----0-5\3-0-|0---0-----0-------------*||
E |---------||-------------------------|-------------------------||
              .     .     .            .     .     

You could play the third in these riff-chords like:

E |------|
C#|5--3--| 
A |5--3--| I'm not sure Rick plays them. Francis does, so in my
E |5--3--| humble opinion the riff sounds better without the thirds.
A |------| The choice is up to you.
E |------|

Repeat main riff until completely fade out











Francis:

I'm not quite sure about how the mainriff is being played by Francis.
I had many possible solutions but I've finally written this one down.
But I'm talking about small details here, the base covers his playing.
For instance I'm not sure if he's playing the full A-chord. You can't 
really hear him playing the third (C#) and the (E) on some places,
but on other places you can.

Solo and overdubs:

On this spot the solo begins. I've written down the solo and overdubs
in one breath because I think they're on the same track.

Overdubs:

This motiv you'll find several times during the song. At the end of
the mainriff, during the hook (on the chords C and D, at the beginning
of verse 2 and 3) and during the repeat and fade out of the mainriff.

  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4  + +      1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + + 
E|------------------15---15b17-|slowly release to-15----|
B|-----------------------------|------------------------|
G|-----------------------------|------------------------|
D|-----------------------------|------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|------------------------|

After verse two you'll find respectively riff 2 (1x), mainriff (1x),
riff 2 (2x) and the mainriff (2x). At the end of the last mainriff
the same motiv has been overdubbed but now an octave lower:

  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +     1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + + 
E|---------------------------|------------------------|
B|------------------8---8b10-|slowly release to-8-----|
G|---------------------------|------------------------|
D|---------------------------|------------------------|
A|---------------------------|------------------------|
E|---------------------------|------------------------|


During the repeat and fade out the first motiv has been
alternated with:

  1 + + 2 + + 3  + +  4 + +  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + + 
E|------------15---14---15--|15b17-release to--15----|
B|--------------------------|------------------------|
G|--------------------------|------------------------|
D|--------------------------|------------------------|
A|--------------------------|------------------------|
E|--------------------------|------------------------|


And during the last riff
  1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + +    1 + + 2 + + 3 + + 4 + + 
E|------------15---14---15--|17b19------r17----------|

The solo begins over the last two bars of the one-finger
riff. It begins with the second motiv discussed above.
