                Intro bass riff.

Repeats several times before changing slightly.
All notes are played staccato apart from the first note of D in the first 3 bars, and 
the last not of D in the first 2 bars.

G-------5--7------7-|-----5--7-------7--|------5--7----|----------------7--|
D-------------------|-------------------|--------------|--7---5------------|
A--5----------------|-5-----------------|-5------------|---------8--7------|
E-------------------|-------------------|--------------|-------------------|


Wobble wobble time on the bass.
Verse modulation.

This is going to use fairly quick alternate picking in parts before moving into a kind 
of galloping rhythm at the end. It's easy to pick out on the record though.

Worked this out by ear. Should be pretty much on the money. Let me know your thoughts.
