    I always played it with the 6m, but I never got any money from it.

    It was a revelation once I switched to all barre chords. Certain parts are hard fo rme to sing as he does as I always want to start on downbeats, but Lou doesn't.

    I only ever knew this version. I didn't line up when my band mates knew the other.

    Yep, that's the version I am most familiar with and they get along just fine without the "riff."

    Now I'm going to be playing this for the next 3 weeks. But that's okay.

    This is cool to me. A riff as iconic as Sweet Jane and yet they switch it up and go with a low E to start off the riff (go to 3:00)
