    Hey all,
    I decided to transcribe and write out this intro because it always sticks in my head when I hear it. It’s 18 bars long including the reverse gated hand clap rhythms.

    Nice! I love that song. I've always played bar 13 a little bit differently than you. And I am NOT demanding that I'm right, but I play the those same 2 strings but with the D-string fretted at fret 2...basically an A power chord I guess. Will have to try it this other way and see what I think!

    Also, I am unable to sing this in G, so I use a effect to lower the pitch of the guitar a three half steps down so I can sing it E, but still play the guitar part as written.

    Junkyard,
    That’s what I get for trusting my 3:00am ears to transcribe . Thanks for pointing it out, I heard a couple of things differently this afternoon with fresh ears, so I changed the music I posted to reflect it. If you printed that one out, please replace it with the revised one.

    Awesome, your timing is perfect! I was watching some Spring Training games earlier today. I think I will make my neighbors angry and try to sing this one tomorrow LOL
    Great job though. Thanks for sharing.
