    Can't find this one one a book. Only found one tab that included guitar solos. Where can more on this song be found?

    75% of the song is chugging away on a D chord, with regular drops to a Bm. (Both are played as power chords, so that's D5 & B5, but the implied harmony is D major & B minor)

    When it stops there's a little run up* in single notes to (IIRC) an F note, then a G F D (slide to the G from F, or hammer it on, I can't remember which).

    Then it goes back to lots of chugging on D5.

    Oh - almost forgot - during the run out there's a bit where it goes G F D a few times, only this time doing that as power chords, instead of single notes.

    I think that was all there was to it.

    :)

    * from memory that run up went something like G A C D F, but I think that's slightly wrong. Without listening to the original that's as close as I can remember.

    There's a little more than power chords, especially at the end.

    I could have asked them last Monday.
    Billy and Dusty were on my flight to Vegas. They played a private function Wednesday and I was lucky to get a pass and see the show.

    Rock on!

    I wonder how much they get asked "hey man how in the world do you play that".

    I said hello to Billy on the plane; however, when he was walking to baggage claim and waiting he had his phone to his ear and never put it down.

    Must be a way to keep the fans from talking to him in public.
