Notes:

During the verses, Erlend plays a modified version of the main riff, ranging from...

1. Playing the two bottom notes on alternating beats.
(3xxxxx, xx0xxx  [x2]; x0xxxx, xx2xxx  [x2]; etc.)

2. Playing the bass note pulse with block chords on alternating beats.
(3xxxxx, xx020xx  [x4]; x0xxxx, xx200xx  [x4]; etc.)

It's a nice alternative and helps with singing the verses.

The most important concept to keep in mind is the dropped sixteenth note in Erlend's
part (guitar #1). Some might want to play this version of the main riff:

|--------------------------------|--------------------------------| 
|--------------0-----------------|--------------0-----------------| 
|----2------(2)------2-----------|----0------(0)------0-----------| 
|----------0-----------------0---|----------2---------------------| 
|--------------------------------|0-------0-------0-------0---2---| 
|3-------3-------3-------3-------|--------------------------------|

It's important to learn how to drop that beat and learn the syncopation, as his
entire guitar part uses this timing. They also alternate heavily with eighth note
pulsing, so keep this in mind / say it out loud:

Wrong: "1 and 2 ee-and-a 3 and 4 and"
Right: "1 and 2-ee     a-3 and 4 and"
