Next we are going to learn the main guitar riff you hear at the top of the song, as well as at the end. Guitar #1 is playing this part in the lower register. Here are some key points to help you through it:

1. Our main riff is one bar long, and is the same riff every time. It will focus on an open D string, along with some quick hammer-ons and pull-offs on our G string. The riff will end on a quick half step bend from D to Eb.

2. In the intro to our song, you will play this riff sixteen times total. You will then bring it back in at the end where you play the same riff as the track fades out.
