Scattered (Let's Think About Livin')
SUBMITTED BY: Michael Campbell



I think the riffs are pretty close, but may not be exact, especially on the Em and G parts (are there some chord variations in here that I'm missing?). This same riff, or variations thereof, is also played between the chorus and verses. also, for a fuller sound, (like when playing solo), an alternate version of the riff is provided below.
