For this next part after the intro where he sings, "Breakin' my back just to know your the guitarist uses a harmonic technique to get that cool helicopter effect. To do this hold your fingers over the strings loosely, not pressing down enough to get sound from the actual notes, but tight enough to not hear open strings vibrate...easy smeasy right? I've transcribed it hear to show the parts of the neck Keuning (guitarist) is hovering and the parts he's "sliding" to. |-------------------------------------------| |-15-\-----9-\-----7-\-----3----------/-5---| |-15--\----9--\----7--\----3---------/--5---| |-15---\---9---\---7---\---3--------/---5---| |-15----\--9----\--7----\--3-------/----5---| |-15-----\-9-----\-7-----\-3------/-----5---| (Hold each of these harmonics for a 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & count while sliding. Don't reach the chord until you finish the counting slide of the other chords. This is the only part of song that requires you to utilize upward and downward strumming in a fast pace.)
