After a short drum intro, the band launches into the main riff. You'll use double stops based on the chord progression, which is a I, IV, V progression. Play steady 8th notes with rests in between to provide a hooky rhythm. Concentrate on really locking in with the rhythm section to make the part as tight as possible.

Watch out for the extra 2 bars of C in the outro, then ending with the F major 7 chord for the final strum!
