-After 8, it just continues to repeat itself.
-The X's mean to slap down on the strings.
Just keep playing it and you will find the rythm. Play it slow at first.
Pluck the D string after each slap as your hand is coming back up, I like to use my pointer finger to do that.
Any questions, email me NKEMIA9@aol.com

ENJOY!!!!!

thanks

I think the original is a little off for the main guitar. If you listen to the song the open G string can be heard the whole time. I dont think he ever goes to the second fret. Just and addition to a good tab. thanks!
