                [Intro]

The intro has some over dubbed riffs.

Riff 1 (Clean)-Basic Idea of strumming pattern. Listen to the song if you want it to be more acurate.

Play each power chord 16 times. I've shown an example witht he first chord.  You are going to slide into the
next chord.                                                       |---Play as written-------|

[Outro]

Riff 1 (Heavy Distortion)-This part is the only part of the song that actually can't be played in standard 
correctly. I have taken out the lowest note of the second chord because that is the only note that is not
playable in standard.  It still sounds good.

G|----------3---4---|x6
D|------1---3---3---|

The sixth time, the last chord is strummed as they're saying, "angels deserve to die."  The actual chord 
they're playing (according to my hearing) is too low for standard.  You can either strum the last chord or the
first chord for the ending.

Riff 2 (Clean)
Just like before, play each power chord 16 times. The first one is an example.
