In this lesson we'll look at the main riff for the intro and all the choruses. An interesting thing about the guitars in this song is that all the rhythm parts are doubled so they sound big and fat, an approach that was a signature during that era.

This progression is diatonic in the key of E major. Keep those steady 1/8th notes going in your right hand and emphasize the rhythm; dig in and project that feel! This is the main riff and a big hook, make it rock.
