------
The intro features 3 guitars. Guitar1 is used to play the riff around the second fret. Guitar2 provides a powerchord accompanyment. Deep in the mix guitar 3 doubles the riff played by guitar1, but up an octive. This can be first heard halfway through bar 4. The verse sections are nominally the same. Guitar 1 has a clean sound and picks an arpeggiated Dsus2 pattern. Let the picked notes ring as you play them. Guitar 2 is distorted and plays powerchords, these should be allowed to sustain over the picked sections. The verses are tabbed for 2 guitars since the D5 played by guitar 2 rings over the picking part, also the 2 parts have quite dissimilar sounds. These can be combined into 1 part. For the chorus Guitar 1 plays chords and short melody lines, and Guitar 2 plays power chords. The guitar solo is quite easy and is essentially 2 different phrases repeated over a C5 to F5 chord progression. Comments, corrections, requests and idle banter welcome.
