I tried it like that but it sounds way to low. The only thing I can think of is that if he played it there, he used an octive pedal to make it sound a whole octive higher. Either that or maybe you play it there on the guitar and then a keyboard plays it up higher at the same time.Give it a try and tell me what you all think. Weezer rocks.
