The Top Ten
Not the whole rhythm part, but some of the riffs are based on only one string. Especially for the intro. Just down pick the low E string. And another good thing is, you don't have to hold any chord for it. No need to place your fingers on the frets. Just one hand is good enough. Right hand. - zxm
