Tunning: Standard (E A D G B e)
B.T.O.\Let it Ride

I got tired of seeing all the bogus tabs for this one
online; nearly all of which are actually the chords
(NOT the tab) and the wrong chords, at that, and
none with the solo. Here's how Randy plays it:

Chords:
There are two guitars but the one that makes
the riff distinctive uses this sequence:

|-10------9-----12----9-------9-7----------------------|
|-10-----10-----12----9h10----7-7----9h10--------------|
|-11------9-----13----9h11----7-7----9h11--------------|
|-12-----11-----14----9--------------9h11--------------|
|------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------|

|-10------9-----12----9-------9-7----------------------|
|-10-----10-----12----9h10----7-7----------------------|
|-11------9-----13----9h11----7-7----------------------|
|-12-----11-----14----9--------------4(x)4(x)4---------|
|------------------------------------4(x)4(x)4-2h4-----|
|------------------------------------2(x)2(x)2---------|


Solo:
