The beginning picking pattern doesn't ne cessarily have to be followed. Just play around with it for a while to get used to it. After the solo then you play the bridge again and alternate those two different parts 8X. Then end on the intro.

In Dropped-D like every song of theirs. I tried many times to figure out this awesome song but I had no luck for some reason. Finally I saw them live in Seattle, which rocked, and saw some kind of MTV production that had them in concert. I taped the MTV thingy and watched it about 20 times to get it right and then I used my ear, which isn't great, off the CD to get it 100% right. I think it is pretty accurate. But anyways: INTRO: I think they're using a phaser. Aadd9?
