Intro

In the first part of the intro ive used the bass line,
 to give it a different sound. For
last part use your fourth finger.
For the second part of the intro,
just remove your first finger from the E chord to make
the E minor, and hit the notes on the second string
with your 4th and 1st finger.

Some of the notes ive put in have been cut off at the far right handed side so just ignore it if it doesnt make sense.
