- the G A G A progression is played like this (powerful sound)

E|----2--x--x--x--x----2----2---x--x--x--x--|
B|----2--x--x--x--x----2----2---x--x--x--x--|
G|----2--x--x--x--x----2----2---x--x--x--x--|
D|----2--x--x--x--x----2----2---x--x--x--x--|
A|-------x--x--x--x-------------x--x--x--x--|
E|--3----x--x--x--x--3----3-----x--x--x--x--|

- Lots of string muting in the G A G A part

- I play the G A G A part by barring the A (x02222)
  with my index finger leave the A string (string 5)
  open and tap the G note with my middle finger.

- Start the first verse after the 4th repeat of intro
  so Hangman would come in on repeat 5.

- Listen to the song to get timing

- I also broke the song up into verses to make it
  easier to keep track. The way I broke them up
  may not be the way it was originally written
