This sequence should be played with an actual slide if you have one. Back off slightly on 
the distortion you intend to use for the majority of the song.

I'm not totally sold on the last set of harmony notes, as they don't too much sense in my head
even though they sound bang on. So let me know if they're off, and I'll whack in a change and 
I'll credit you for it.

The power chords without a vibrato mark should be struck powerfully once, and then palm muted
until the next chord change - tabbing every palm-muted note is untidy and unclear, and working
out a simple rhythm for yourselves is good practice. The chords with a vibrato mark are the
chords in between the palm-muted chugged chords, and should get most of the emphasis.

The slid power chords and pull-offs in between the palm-muted sections are more noticable live,
so if you're struggling or they sound out then refer to some of the many live performances
knocking around on the internet and see how Slash does them.

Chorus:

The solo is coming! For now, stick with the solo rhythm: E5, G5, D5, E5 x2

Post-Solo:

Ab|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Eb|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Slide back on for this, if you can! It's the same riff as the intro, more or less, simply up a tone
in key.

Again, this part is essentially the same except up a tone, switching back to the original when
you go from the F/E slide to C in the second half. The three notes at the end are a very quick 
triplet that Slash uses to climb back into the chorus riff, so watch out for them as they're 
quite awkwardly timed.
