The difference between Rhy fig 1 & Rhy fig 1a is that in Rhy fig 1a in the 3rd A5 you also play the lower strings, or in other words you play an A (577655) instead of an A5 power chord. Intro.- In the intro you play Rhy fig 1 or 1a several times, (alternate between them, listen to the record so you can know when to play each one) about four, then continue playing it while a second guitar enters playing this:
