This song uses power chords to play the entire song and is an essential electric guitar riff to learn!

Song breakdown

This should be played with root 5 power chords starting on F sharp and going to E, G, A and B! The rhythm uses 16th strumming and chord hand string muting to create the signature riff!

Chorus - woo hoo!

Part 1 (Andy) - power chords played close to the head of the guitar, same chords as above and strumming 8th notes
