In this bit, we figure out just how to position our fretting hand. This is the hand positioning we keep throughout the song. It's a variation of a barre chord I call Tiger Claw. If you master it, you can become a rock ninja.
In this lesson, we practice the beginning part of the song.
Now is the time when you must tune your guitar. If you don't know how to tune your guitar...

2. Search "Free Guitar Tuner"
3. Open the tuner

This part of the song is what we call a "walk down". The walking down from F# to E is something we go over at length. Next we conquer the full step in the walk down, and finally the half step.
In this section, we figure out how to the end the song. We go from the "bop bop" chorus all the way until the end of the song.
Now is the time for you to find your favorite recording of the song and practice along, singing and playing, ten times in a row. You will have it for sure, then!
