DOWNLOAD THE SONGSHEET
YOU CAN PLAY ALONG WITH THE VIDEO with slight variations for group play! To make it easier for the two parts, I've done up separate sheets - one which shows all the lead and some of the backup (SINGLE), and one for the BACK UP vocals. You can use whichever you like. On BUG Jam night, the SINGLE version will be on the screens and I'll ask someone to come up and do the BACK UP part.
FOR THE RIFF: place and KEEP your fingers in a [G] shape starting on the 9th fret. Then just move your baby finger on and off the 11th and 12 frets as needed. I may also have someone do this on toy piano....
