* Optional riff A7‐E7‐C7‐C4 (strings and fret positions)

Listened to this song many times now, and there seems to be a note missing in the optional riff. it seems to be ...

* Optional riff A7‐E7‐C7‐C2-E0 (strings and fret positions)

* optional riff
A: |7---------------|2----
E: |----7---------0-|0----
C: |----------7-2---|2----
G: |----------------|0----

or somewhat easier to play ...

* Optional riff A7‐E7‐E3‐C2-E0 (strings and fret positions)

* optional riff
A: |7---------------|2----
E: |----7-----3---0-|0----
C: |------------2---|2----
G: |----------------|0----

What do you think?

Hey Claude,
You've nailed the exact 5 note riff that is used in the Neil Young video. I suspect Richard G left out the quick little 4th note (the D note) of the riff for simplicity. The 4 note riff he used, * Optional riff A7‐E7‐C7‐C4 is simpler then the 5 note riff, although I prefer to play it this way:
A7-E7-C7-E0. We've printed the sheet music already. But the 4 note riff and the 5 note riff work together, so it doesn't matter which you choose to put in OnSong. :)
