Cause it burns right here, hey

Awesome job, but the intro slide should be the other way around.
Like when it goes
E|-------------|
B|-------------|
G|-----7--7/9--|
d|-----4--4----|
A|-----0--5/7--|
D|--0--0--0----|
It should be
E|-------------|
B|-------------|
G|-----7--9/7--|
d|-----4--4----|
A|-----0--5/5--|
D|--0--0--0----|
