sometimes repeated once more, other times repeated many times with
vocal jam

next riff/opening riff as found on r2t:
this riff is used throughout the song, and is easiest to master if
you use index finger for all 2s and 5s on the low e-string, your
ring finger for all 3s and 7s on the low e-string, your middle finger
on all 2s and 6s on the d-string, and your pinky for all 4s and 7s on
the d-string.  and an easier way to master this song is to watch dave
carefully if you ever get the chance.  it may sound like a simplistic
way, but if you can get up closer to him, you'd be amazed at how his
progressions stand out in your mind when you get back to your own axe,
even if you were standing thirty feet away from him.
