Do not buy!

This is NOT a note for note transcription. There are no solos - especially not the cool hammond solo in the middle of the song. The famous tinkling piano part is not written out either. This was a complete waste of money.

Sadly, I must agree...

...with the other reviewers criticisms. This is the "band camp" version of the song. Where a classic rock number is bastardized to the point that middle school bands can play it. Its fine if you dont particularly like the song. A fan of the song is just going to grit their teeth and wait for it to be over. I read the review before I bought it, but convinced myself that "maybe" it will get better after the introduction. It did not. No solos. Just the lyrics and chorus, over and over. If music-notes had had a longer sample, I would have never bought this. I would have selected one of the other versions. Run, dont walk away from this one.

Excellent!

This piece was very well put together, and followed the song ideally. Some sections proved to be more of a challenge than others, though can be simplified in order to play the piece straight through. It is enough of a challenge that you feel rewarded at the end, but not too difficult to be played by someone of my level.
