RIFFS:

Most of the song is based on single note riffs played in unison
by the guitars, bass and piano (sometimes doubling the vocal).
Several of the riffs include a slight variation when they are
repeated - this is denoted with the  *  character.

The funky syncopated notes are generally staccato.
Sustained notes are indicated thus:  |-----7=======----|

The key to playing all of these parts well is to maintain the
alternate picking technique throughout. This means many of the
phrases will begin with an upstroke and many of the accents will
also be upstrokes.

Timing and groove may be lost in attempting to play all accents
with downstrokes.

Count in sixteenths and pick strictly as indicated:

   1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a          d = downstroke
   d u d u d u d u d u d u d u d u          u = upstroke

When playing the rests and sustained notes in the riffs keep the
stroke going without hitting the string.
