All right! Here we are. I sincerely hope that even somebody finds
this simple transcription useful.
Especially in the main riff I was having real difficulties, but my
dear friend Antti "Donald" Kauppinen gave me some valuable clues
(Thanks a Million!!)...There's something still indistinct but those
parts are marked with '???'s.

Because I usually play keyboards, I wasn't skilled enough to
transcribe the solo. Also some fills I left off to save my brain &
time & fellowmen :) Maybe somebody will let us know the secrets of
Ritchie's fill & solo playing.

The tab isn't perfect (stranger) but who cares?? Flames, corrections
and thanks more than welcome!

If someone thinks this was a cool piece of work or something like
that PLEASE LET ME KNOW! Email or write a follow-up! This was
actually my first attempt on transcribing so you understand that
feedback is important.

Keep on rocking!
