[Intro: Bars 1– 4] It is well worth examining the fingering and picking pattern for the opening riff. This part is repeated many times throughout the track so start slow and develop an economic technique that you can play instinctively. The hammer-on and pull-off from C# to D and back again is a key feature and this needs to be crisp. Make sure you hammer your finger down to sound the D and then pull off as opposed to simply lifting the finger up to sound the C#. [Verse 1: Bars 5-12] The lead line in bar 10 is originally played by guitar 2 but we’ve included in the transcription as it’s a prominent feature and not too tricky to get in. If you’d like to play a solo acoustic version without lead lines then just substitute this for the part from bar 6.
