# Note: This song is essentially made up of two components: the riff 
# (basically the first four bars of the song) and the solo (basically
# the first two bars of the solo section below.) The enitre song is
# more or less a composition of these six bars, played repeatedly with
# minor variations. So, don't be discouraged by the length of this tab.
# The song is simpler than it looks. :D

That may have just been a typo, bit the riff is supposed to be played on the G string then the E strong. If you meant that you prefer playing it on the E and C strings rather than the G and E strings, I can definitely see where you are coming from. The actual riff is played using the notes I've specified here three or more octaves lower, so although your way sacrifices key accuracy, it does increase pitch accuracy. If that sounds better to you, I say go for it.

Eh, its OK at best. Does not sound much like the original song. It sounds a little better if the riff is played on the E string then the C string instead of the G string and then the C string. Maybe that's just me though.

Nice tab. It sounds good played over a funky G-Em progression too.
