                      1/4
|------------------------------------------|       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.
