    Thanks. Those are the chords I? played – just the barre forms of them, which sounds better when playing distorted electric.

    It’s in the annotations – the X’s indicate I don’t play those strings. The numbers indicate the fret number that I? play on each of the strings. HTH.

    no i meant the strumming pattern of the? chords.when the song starts for eg DUUUDD like that.

    It’s all downstrokes, on the eighth notes – i.e., 8 per measure (it’s in 4/4 time so a measure has 4 quarter notes? or 8 eighth notes). In the 1st and 3rd measure, you add an extra downstroke right at the end of the measure, which you sustain, then skip the first half beat in the 2nd and 4th measure.
    So it looks like:
    D-D-D-D-D-D-DD|–D-D-D-D-D-D-D-| x2

    Hope that makes sense, it’s a little hard to explain. Listening to the song alongside should help.

    I’m basically using a Mesa/Boogie Triaxis Lead simulation with some chorus and a touch of EQ. The exact settings will depend on your processor, amplifier? and guitar, so I don’t know if it would be the same on yours.

    @ShubhamMishra1989 This guitar is actually not a Gibson – it’s a PRS Sunburst 22. I traded the Gibson in for this because I wasn’t getting along with the tremolo. I bought it from Guitar Center? in California.
