I think it's more poweer chords. Do you really try to play on one string?

I'm pretty sure the intro is made up of octave lines, not power chords; the rhythm part is power chords, but the very first guitar part that comes in is an octave chord, I'm pretty sure.

Heh, it's funny you didn't mention whether you're talking about guitar or bass.

Dragnet, if he's talking about guitar, I think he means the lead part that comes in after the bass.

EDIT: Wow, it is octave lines. I never noticed that. Then again, I haven't heard this in a long time. Heh, no wonder it never sounded right when I used to play it.

Note: On a power chord you tend to play the root-fifth-root. On an octave, you mute the fifth with your ring finger (or pinkie if you play the power chord that way).

This is just an advice for novices!

So, the octave the song starts with is:

e
B
G 12
D x
A 10
E

Whoa, I've learned two new things today. I always muted the fifth with my index finger. Same effect, though, of course.;)

tab sites arent always that accurate so it may be best looking round. you could also buy the official book but that can be expensive and there are still misstakes!

Yeah, tabs aren't the most accurate sources.. most of the time I just use them as a guide and figure out the wrong parts on my own.
