This is probably the only song by The Pretty Reckless which is actually worth learning
on guitar to be honest, but it is an awesome song to play along to. On the most part,
it's really easy as well! The intro riff is really simple, the chords for the chorus are 
really straight forward, there's only one bit which will probably trip you up...

The riff in the bridge which follows the vocal melody is really quite basic, as it's
only a few notes which are all quite close together, it just takes a bit of practice to be
able to play it up to speed. I had to take about 20 minutes to play it over and over 
before my fingers could do it right :/
