The  F# chord  in the VERSE is played in straight eighths with a muted
fretting technique creating the distinctive 'bucka-bucka' sound.
The chord rings only on the first eighth beat.

The RIFF is a sequence of three chords played in quarter notes.
The bass is playing in the same range as the guitar.

                    RIFF:
   F#                    A   B   A5/E  F#
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2   3   4     1 + 2 +
E|-----------------|-----------------|---------~~
B|-2---------------|-----2==/4-------|-2-------~~     X = muted strum
G|-3-X-X-X-X-X-X-X-|-X-X-2==/4-------|-3-X-X-X-~~     / = slide and pick again
D|-4---------------|-----2==/4---2===|=4-------~~   === = sustained note
A|-4---------------|-----0=======0===|=4-------~~

G|-----------------|-----------------|---------~~
D|-----------------|-----7==/9-------|---------~~
A|-----------------|-------------7===|/9-------~~
E|-----------------|-----------------|---------~~

The  A-B  sequence is best played with the ring finger, in order that
the index finger is in position to fret the  E-note  on  Beat-4.
The  A-string  rings through the slide, then is struck again for the A5.
(This chord has been previously published erroneously as E major)
Careful muting of the unplayed strings during  A5  is required.
Listen for the open  G-string  error on the original recording after the
line "with a girl named Fleur".

LICK:
Typical single note pickup line into the IV chord played in unison.

BREAKDOWN:
F#  F#  F#  RIFF

The muted  F# chord  plays two bars of eighths.
The next bar is three strums on each beat.
At this tempo they sound like triplets but it is actually a
sixteenth note pattern - requiring double-speed strumming.

  1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
  / / /   / / /   / / /   / / /         d = down strum
  d u d u d u d u...                    u = up strum
