YOU CAN PLAY ALONG WITH THE VIDEO! To make it easier for the two parts, I've done up separate sheets - one for the LEAD vocals, one for the BACKUP. You can use whichever you like. On BUG Jam night, the BACKUP version will be on the screens. If you're singing by yourself, you can use the SINGLE version.
FOR THE RIFF: place and KEEP your fingers in a [G] shape starting on the 9th fret. Then just move your baby finger on and off the 11th and 12 frets as needed.
