-Solo

-Main Riff(x2)

-Chorus
*[The ending to this part includes 8 extra down strums for the ending G Barre chord]

-Main Riff(x4)

-Outro


(This open E note is plucked right before the main riff in the intro,
but the start of each measure is on the 5th fret of the E string which is an 'A' note)

***The best way to play this is using Einziger's method, which is using a pick between the thumb and index
finger, then using your 2nd, 3rd, and pinkie fingers to finger pluck high strings.***

I also found that positioning the fingers in an open G shape on the 5th is the easiest position.
The 3rd finger will be on the G string, the 4th will be on the high E.
