Two guitarists may be required to play this song. After all, Francis and Rick are both guitarists and have been together for over forty years. This is why some of the bars are doubled; each represents a guitarist’s part; one of them playing the chords (where the vertical digits are located), the other playing the melody (the 12-12-13-13, etc bit). I have joined them together using the symbol in-between the two. The double : symbol indicates the repeat.
