Awesome bit

Break - just drums and bass. Hit some open strings
(with emphasis on the open CGC power chord)
at the start of that bit. Then, after a few bars, play:

F|---------|
C|---------|
G|---------|
C|---------| and let that ring out.

Hey, i saw biffy play this a couple of nights ago and I'm pretty sure the slides in the intro section are like this:

d|-------------------------------
a|-------------------------------
f|-------------------------------
c|-10/14-10/14-10/14-10/14-10/14-
g|-x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--
c|-10/14-10/14-10/14-10/14-10/14-

It's the same notes just played as an octave in a more convenient position.

i would play the chorus with an open g-string (5th string) make it much easier and sounds just as good
