Introduction:

Another classic but surprisingly challenging theme.

There are many variations that can be made to this riff, such as bending the 3 to a 4, instead of simply playing fret 4. As this is a beginner guitar course, we’ve kept it simple for now and left out the bend.

Notes:

Another classic but surprisingly challenging theme.

  • Part of the key to getting this song is to keep the picking consistent. All of the notes should be at the exact same pace.
  • Remember, the almost every student learns this song best using the following structure:
    • 2 0
    • 3 0
    • Put them together – 2 0 3 0
    • Add 5 4 – 2 0 3 0 5 4
    • Add 0 0 to the start – 0 0 2 0 3 0 5 4
  • Our fret numbers are  –  0 0 2 0 3 0 5 4
  • Watch that picking hand! It should actually look like it’s playing Picking Exercise 1.
