Hey guys this should be a pretty easy one for you. What's the lick after the G at the end of the verse, right before the Am of the chorus? It's at about 3:35 in this video from JDarks:

How do you play that lick or your version of it?

Thanks. This site has helped me a ton. 8)

I always just walk down the E string to E and then put my A under that so i get the 1 5 harmony


-----------
A-------0--
E-3-2-0----

This is what I do...


E---3-3-2-po2---then hit the Am.

Damned if I know what Darks is doing half the time because his tabs are usually different than what he does in his vids.

I'm a little confused...does "po2" mean start on the 2nd fret and pull off to the open string?


Thanks for the replies everyone. For what it's worth, I had been playing it like this:

E|--------------
B|--------------
G|--------------
D|--------------
A|-----2--2--1--
E|--3-----------

Yes, it means pick the "2", or G flat and then pull off. Or sommetimes I'll pick it twice and then pick the open E once before going to the Am.
