Certain parts of the solos may be incorrectly transcribed, but they
should be in the right key anyway. Make amends where you see fit.

Have fun with it.

By the way, this song is the primary reason to revere Brad Whitford as 
he played most every note on it. Other good reasons: Voodoo Medicine Man, 
Kings and Queens, Last Child, Round and Round (the list goes on). All
Hail Brad.
