repeat part (1), then (2), then (3) and then (4)
so everything actually... :-)

then you repeat part (1), but not entirely. Do it like this:


   ^              Am     G  Am		       Am     G  Em	
E |5-7-8-7-5---5-|5-5-5--3--5--|5-7-8-7-5---5-|5-5-5--3--0--|

G |--------------|7-7-7--5--7--|--------------|7-7-7--5--2--|
B |--------------|7-7-7--5--7--|--------------|7-7-7--5--2--|
E |--------------|5-5-5--3--5--|--------------|5-5-5--3--0--|
   	          d u d  d  d                  d u d  d  d
   (distortion)

A |5-6-8-6-5---5-|0-0-0--3--5--|
D |----------7---|0-0-0--4--5--|

B |--------------|2-2-2--5--7--|
E |--------------|0-0-0--3--5--|
		  d u d  d  d		
  			    (clean)

And here you need to slow down a little while you're playing.
----------------------------------------------------------------
^ = Play these notes up to down in a slight move so you can here every note of 
them.
    You can here it very good at the beginning of the song.

d = Hit the snares down

u = Hit the snares up
