Note: Play Opening Part and then continue on to the rest - don’t play the
opening again. Repeat the other part 3 times. On 4th time when you hit the *
start the Saxophone Solo.

Bass for a while...Then...

Decending Riff

B|--10-9-8-7-6-5-4-----|
G|------------------5--| x 7 (fade out on 8)
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|

Followed by the opening guitar riff with a few slight variations. You should be able to 
it out.

Horn Riff

Then...

Background Riff x 1 1/2
Instead of going to the sax solo on the * though, go straight to main riff.

It then fades out doing the main riff. It just repeats in some order. Not too hard to 
it out.
