    Pick real Fast and alot

    By this ( ) I mean hold the B chord with your ring finger and just perform

    the

    hammer and pull-offs with your index finger. Repeat This rythmn figure until

    you hit the bridge to the chorus. The Bridge into the chorus has a bunch

    of

    power chords which are held. Listen to the tune and you'll get the picture....

    Chorus (Lyrics go 'HELPLESS....!')

    Part 1 Part 2 Part 3

    A repeat 3x| A G | A G A

    e|---------------------------------|------------------|-----------------

    B|---------------------------------|------------------|-----------------

    G|--------------------------------*|-----------------*|-----------------

    D|------------------7p5---------5-*|-----------5-5-5-*|-----------5-5-7-

    A|----------------------7-6-7-6----|-----------5-5-5--|-----------5-5-7-

    E|--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----------------|-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-3--|-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-5-

    By this I mean play Part 1 three times, then play Part 2. Then you play Part

    1

    three times again and finish the chorus with Part 3. Work with me on this

    one... I'm not sure about the part 1 section... but this is close....

    Now return to ryth. Fig 1 amd play it till you hit the chorus a second 

    time... do the chorus again and then play rythmn Fig 1 again until you hit

    the

    little Newstead bass solo, after which you hit a second bridge. I prefer

    to

    enter into this section with a jumping, banging pick slide. In other words

    I 

    bounce the pick off the low E, A and D while sliding the edge down the 

    fretboard... Anyway it sounds real cool...
