We'll get started with the first guitar part, which stands alone quite nicely. If you are a beginner, start here and don't worry about guitar 2!

Here are the chords, each bar is divided by two chords:

D G D G D G D D

We'll learn what I call the HIGH PINCH on G chord. This high G note gives our intro some harmonic interest, but we'll see the same device used later in the song a as a way to end a phrase. We'll learn how to HAMMER on last D chord, beat 3 of last bar. You'll be using the 2nd finger on your right hand to make your hammer.
