Note: Use headphones and listen closely, the gain from the guitar makes it hard to hear, but the bass is in the 
background Playing higher up than the guitar. If you listen to the last note in the opening riff (the c) notice it’s 
lower then the others. At 3:40 and 4:46 in the song, the bass is playing the same as the guitar, you will notice a 
distinct difference between that riff and the intro riff.
 
Also, listen closely, Justin is doing a variation, even in the intro.
