|---------------------------------|       This is the basic riff. By the 
|---------------------------------|       4th time the drums enter. See
|---------------------------------| X8    that guitar does some mute or 
|-------2-2-----------------------|       harmonic noises between notes;
|-----------4-4-4-5---------------|       listen to the song.
