    So as some of you may recall, I'm slowly and painfully teaching my self to play the guitar. On a whim, I decided to try to learn this song by ear on bass before trying the guitar part. I have most of it figured out but for some f'n reason, I can't figure out the intro. It's too fast and I just can't hear the notes as I'm pissing up the frets. I've tried it tuned a half step down and in drop D (where I think it's supposed to be) but I'm not hearing it. Any help? Just the intro, the first 5 seconds or so.

    I'm going to loop the intro and slow it down later on but maybe one of you can save me the headache.

    Switch to bass. The world has too many guitarists and not enough bassists. Plus your drumming will help with the bass playing. That's my theory anyway.

    I am learning this tune on the bass. I switch back and forth between the two. I'm not any good at either one.

    I've never denied that, tagman. I'm not ashamed to ask for help from the find folks of dawgsaloon.
