Outro: Guitar (I & II) One of the biggest mistakes among tabber is the pinch harmonics. They're all over the in the outro. They get deeper and harder and the song fades out. The best sounding thing do is simple : pinch harmonics harder as the song goes along. Use your thumb to hit the after picking them to do these pinch harmonics. As the outro progresses do it harder. biggest thing to do is to make sure you go from the first pickup closest to the 22nd and slowly go to the right pickup (to the left if your lefthanded).
