This is obviously an electric guitar song.  So it is really
neat to play if you have an amp with good overdrive.  It
sounds better if you have a guitar with a pickup selector
switch like a Rickenbacker or a Les Paul, but that is just 
for more flair and perfection. 

Cool trick:
If you have a fairly good CD player, hit the pause button
(which should put the player in standby/play mode) then go
to track 6.  Now you should have an INDEX button on your
remote, hit Index to number 2 (usually it is a smaller number
on the digital display right next to the track number).  The
CD will automatically skip over the 1:01 min interlude/intro
on the acoustic guitar and right to the actual "beginning"
of the song!!!  Pretty cool!!  I assume this was done to 
accomodate Radio DJ's who want not such a long song... 
Now go check all of your other CDs to see who else did this!!

Amp Setting:
MEDIUM OVERDRIVE, MEDIUM GAIN, MEDIUM REVERB, MEDIUM CHORUS
