This is a BNL classic that I`ve never seen tabbed just right. So here`s my two cents.

***CAPO 2nd FRET***

Chords used:

Just a few notes here:
1) This is my first foray into the world of fingerpicking.
2) Even with that, this is a pretty easy riff to do with a little practice.
3) To pull it off, you`re probably going to have to alternate between fingerpicking and
using the actual pick. Some of the changes are fast, and there`s really no trick
to get better at it than just doing it over and over.

Now that that`s out of the way...


This is the main riff of the song, fingerpicked over all the verses.
(The last note is just a pickup for the repeat)

Main Riff:

e|--------0------------------------------0-------3----0----3-----------3----
B|--3--------3---------------------3--------3-------------------2-----------
G|-----0----------0-----0-----0--0----0-----------------------------------0-
D|-------------------2-----0------------------------------------------------
A|--3--------2-------0-----2-------3--------2---------0---------0h2---------
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------


This is the riff for the last part of the verse leading into the chorus.
(The first half is fingerpicked and the second is played with a pick)

Riff 2:

e|--------0------------------------------------------------------------------2--3-

Here is a little riff that`s played in the bridge.

Riff 3:

e|--------------------------
B|--------------------------
G|--------0-----------0-----
D|-----4-----4-----4-----4--

This is the riff that happens right before the outro.

Finally we have the outro riffs which end the song.
