***************************PERFORMANCE NOTES*************************** **if you only have one guitarist and wanna play it live, just make the bass play the riffs”, and the guitar can play the “lead intro” Most of the riffs can be combined for one guitar very easily, not hard to figure out.
for the chorus, if you only have one guitarist try this: |----------------|------------------|------------------------------------| |----------------|------------------|---------13-13-10--8---6-5--5-6-5-7-| |-7-7--3--5-5--7-|-7-7--3---5-5--7--|-7-7--3---x--x--7--0---x-x--5-5-5-7-| |-7-7--3--5-5—-7-|-7-7--3-—-5-5--7--|-7-7--3--10-10--7--7-7-3-3--5-5-5-5-| |-5-5--1--3-3--5-|-7-7--3---3-3--5--|-5-5--1--10-10--5--7-7---3--3-3-3---| |----------------|-7-7--3-----------|---------10-10-----7-7---3----------|
