drums and guitar come in first

    B                            2x
–                                             /  16 x 16 x 16

–  2  2  2 / 14 x 14 x 14  6 7 / 9 x 9 x 9


now this isn’t the way phil plays it in this particular concert but
this is how i play it and if you don’t like it just change it up
it’s just e to b

repeat intro part in b then go back into e to b part and into a part,
it does this a couple of times and then instead of going into the e
to b part they play:
                          ______
III.
    F#                     B                  / 1.     E

–  0 2/4        2  4/6      5  7/9      7  9/11

the order goes like this

I
II
I
II
I
III
II
I
II  etc…

thats all i know, usually they will go from this into fire on the
mountain, which is a b to a progression, but its really easy to
figure out,  so try this.
