    I used the tab on Songsterr and used that to play to the song and this is now how I play it. Sounds good with the recording. I'll be playing it at rehearsal this Friday and hope it sounds good there.

    .. fun song to play ... we do all 50's 60's music with one group, and I play it similar to this, but with two guitars and a piano I tend to use the E and A string for the intro and during the verses to help balance and sit a bit better ... the chorus is almost as written here though, and that gets fun ... I usually find myself ending the verses up around the 12th fret so I can get a good slide down to the busy chorus riff too ... creates a nice effect for us ... enjoy!!
