- 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 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Intro/Riff
