VERSES:

PLAY RHYTHM 1 (Both Guitars). Dave sticks fairly close to the

picking pattern but Adrian varies it sligthly. Dave's guitar has a

phaser on it and Adrians is chorused.

At the end of the verses in place of the Gsus4 chord of RHYTHM 1

slide up and down the bottom E string to cover up turning on the

distortion.
