================================================================================

The recording is tuned 50 cents sharp (one quarter tone) possibly as a result
of speeding up the tape during mastering.

Some of the lyrics may be inaccurate - little Stevie mumbles his way through.

INTRO:
   E5
   1     +     2
E|---------------
B|---------------                      >  down pick rake across the strings
G|---------------                      V  up pick
D|---2-----------  slight )
A|--2----2-------  medium  )  muting
E|-0-------------  heavy  )
   >     V

The tempo is flying (~216bpm) so only fragments of the chords are utilised
for the quick changes.  There appear to be several different forms used.
The chorus can use basic first position forms or barre chords.

   E       D         G     E
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

E|-----------------|-----------------| |-----------------|-----------------|

Note that the bass guitar plays an E-pedal during the first half of the song.
Also listen for the wacky quarter-note-triplet fill under the C-chord in the
final chorus.

Instead of playing it so fast and speeding up the tape they could have edited
out some of the solo to keep it under the two minute barrier!
FWIW here is one way to get close to what's on the record.
E minor pentatonic scale with occasional bend to the b5 (and one M3)
Copious use of the open E-string
