  I heard this song the other day and it blew me away, so I had to figure it
out.


Intro:  Acoustic with electric a la Tesla

Repeat 4 times You may ask "how the heck is it possible to play this?" I personally think that Skeoch has evolved an extra finger to play this stuff. The way I do it is to make use of my thumb to fret the low E string on the G and F#, then do a painful bend with my pinky along with the F base note. Transition Riff 1: Acoustic and electric sound again

Repeats twice Next, play verse 2 times again (Acoustic only) Verse 2 guitar 1: (on first 1.5 times through, both acoustic and clean electric, then just the acoustic)
