Riff 2: 1X

(I think the most convenient way to get from C to G
 in this riff is to use you ring finger to get to
 the 12th fret of the D string.)

Richard Lloyd's part in the verses still follow the chords
somewhat.

Anyhow, I'm not Richard Lloyd, so this is the best I can offer:

Verse 2

Solo/Break

Okay, I didn't want to put this here since
Tom plays it differently all the time, but
this is the recorded version and the tab
would be incomplete without it. Anyway,
this is the best I can do...
but who cares really?
