* lick 1 = E  D  B A  G E  E (octave lower)
* lick 2 = A  B  D B  G D E

Notes:  E5 may be E maj or E min, it isn't clear.  The rythm plays E5
and
the solo sometimes plays major 3rd sometimes minor 3rd.

Also, the its not clear if the Em7 is an Em7 or a G with an E in the
bass.

I find that these ambiguities are part of the appeal of the song.
