[Intro: Bars 1- 4] The opening riff is something a slide player in open tuning might play. Use down strokes and increase the attack as you progress. The 9th chords in bar 4 make for a sweet sounding turnaround. [Chorus 1: Bars 5-20] The verses are a mixture of rhythm and lead lines. The lead lines function as an answer to the vocal phrase Takin’ Care Of Business. This ‘question and answer’ phrasing harks back to the work songs of the deep South. If you are playing with a thumb and fingerpick like Freddie, it’s just a case of working through and finding the most intuitive way to pluck the various notes. Of course most players will probably favour a plectrum and you can get pretty close to Freddie’s tone with a metal pick or coin.
