(Quick drum fill, then into intro)

Intro:
Note: I always thought that this was just a straightforward
      F#5 strumming, however, upon closer listen, you can
      clearly hear the changes from 244xxx to 044xxx
      When playing, try to focus on strumming the E and A
      strings more. You may want to just play the chords as
      24xxxx and 04xxxx

Note 2: Listen to the recording to get how this is played
        I prefer all downstrum, but you may play whatever way you wish

(Play 4 times and lead into Verse) Verse: (* = After chord is played, 3 muted harmonics are played quickly between To do this, move your pointer finger from the 2nd to 3rd fret; lightly touching the E string and strum away. You'll hear the same sound as on the recording).

D5 D5 D5 D5 night. Tonight, tonight... (strum F#5 once and hold into solo) Solo: Note: This was difficult to make out on the recording, so it is more than likely not 100%. Just fool around with it and you will come close. Or you can always improvise if you're good. :) (Guitar 2 plays Intro Part as rhythm backing)
