Hi mate

first of all thanks. This is one of my favourite 80's metal song but I never learnt it really well. I would not rate it as an easy song tough: the only thing that's quite easy is the strummin pattern which is on straight eight notes (played with downstrums only to give more emphasis but could work with any other pattern also a simple du/du/du/du). First it has an arpeggio (played with pick) and secondarily it is all power chords with a few fast changes too. Anyway here is my question: since it is not easy to read the tab, woud you post the chord sheet with the changes?

Matteo

p.s. if you're into Skid Row go check my post about Remember you and check if you see any mistakes

hello all

I've almost learnt to play it complete with arpeggios! The most tricky part is the intro/verse arpeggio because it needs to master an almost perfect barre-tecnhique to be played cleanly! Anyway a friend of mine showed me how to play it and being an arpeggio he did like this:

a) played a full barre for the C# chord
b) then keep down only the index finger to play the B chord
c) then put the other fingers down to play the C # and so on

Matteo
