Good to Have it Back Dr Sardonicus
Outside of its own merits, Give it Away will always be known as the song that came back, along with Spoonman. And luckily, the chart means its return is not unwarranted.

You start off with the intro riff, which is composed of GY-GY-GR-GRhoYhoYB, followed by O-B-Y 5 times. You then repeat this again, except with the trio replaced with B-BhoR 5 times before you enter the verse. The verse is composed of single notes going around the fretboard, starting from the green and going off of there. It manages to be fun, but speaking from personal experience, it's a lot more fun on actual guitar. Afterwards, you play the chorus, where is fast strumming of a GY chord, followed by two three note chords before returning to the GY.

Afterwards, you play the verse again, followed by the chorus, before you reach the 1st solo. It's pretty easy and boring, since it's entirely long sustains. After a verse and an empty chorus, you reach the 2nd solo, which is also mostly sustains, but ends with a long line of trill lanes. Overall, the solos are the weakest point. This is followed by a verse, a chorus, and the ending chorus repetition, where you play half the main riff, followed by a red sustain,

Overall, the song was a lot of fun. It's weird to say, but the solos were the weakest part of the song. Luckily, the rest of the chart manages to be really engaging and fun for the most part. It's no Spoonman, but it's a lot of fun.
