 All right! Here we are. I sincerely hope that even somebody finds
 this simple transcription useful. 
 Especially in the main riff I was having real difficulties, but my
 dear friend Antti "Donald" Kauppinen gave me some valuable clues
 (Thanks a Million!!)...There`s something still indistinct but those
 parts are marked with `???`s.
  
 Because I usually play keyboards, I wasn`t skilled enough to 
 transcribe the solo. Also some fills I left off to save my brain &
 time & fellowmen :) Maybe somebody will let us know the secrets of
 Ritchie`s fill & solo playing.
  
 The tab isn`t perfect (stranger) but who cares?? Flames, corrections
 and thanks more than welcome! 
  
 If someone thinks this was a cool piece of work or something like
 that PLEASE LET ME KNOW! Email or write a follow-up! This was
 actually my first attempt on transcribing so you understand that
 feedback is important.
  
 Keep on rocking!
