All Hands Against His Own - The Black Keys

This week I thought it might be fun to post a transcription of a song I've been enjoying by The Black Keys.  It's called All Hands Against His Own and it's off an album called Rubber Factory.  The song uses an A minor penatonic scale, a D power chord, and a 2 note version of G and A major chords.  You can listen to the song here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qq3me71L6NA  Enjoy.
