Tips:
You must listen to the song to get a feel for the song.
The chorus is a choppy part where Davy alternates between downstrokes on the bottom
and upstrokes on the top strings. Use chunky distortion to get the right sound.
The F7 chord has a little slide in it from the third to the fourth fret during the choruses.
In the verses, strum the chords and arpeggiate the top three strings.
The verses are played with a delay-type pedal which and slight tremolo effects.
For the solos, improvise dramatically.
Have fun, this is a great, impressive song.
