how do i play 0 0 4 ?

guess it's a noobish question but help would be apreciated.

You place your index finger

You place your index finger on the open string, your middle finger on the first 4, and your pinky on the second 4 and pinch the strings together... If that makes much sense. The fingers you use can be changed up to fit your style.

Wow, that's pretty odd for

Wow, that's pretty odd for me. I would use thumb for the bottom string, index for the middle and ring for the top. I never use my right-hand pinky.

Hello, i had a question on

Hello, i had a question on how to play measures four and five. I can play through most of this tab fine, but when i play those two measures they do not sound right. I read through the comments that there are arpeggiated parts, is this why? I am learning this song for my guitar midterm tomorrow, so quick help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

my best advice is to mess

my best advice is to mess with it a little, and keep trying til it works, cause trust me, it does.

sai-doom has an awesome tab here; what notes in particular are you speaking of?

Is there any particular way

Is there any particular way you would recommend playing this part? It's the line where it goes:
|--------2-----0-----------|--------------------------|
|--------3-----------3-----|--1-----1-----0-----------|
|-----2-----2-----2-----2--|-----2--------------2-----|
|--4-----0-----------0-----|--2--------2-----2--------|
|--0-----------0-----------|--0-----0--------------0--|
|--0-----------------0-----|--------------------------|
and I guess here too:
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|--2----------2--------2--|
|--4----0--4-----0--4-----|
|--0----------------------|
|--0----------------------|

Most everything else has sounded correct. Thanks for replying.

okay, i see what youre talkin

okay, i see what youre talkin about, but i dont really have a recommendation for it man, sorry haha.

i agree that that part doesnt sound right, but it sounds good all the same; if i were you id just play it that way anyhow, just to keep with the rhythm and flow of the arrangement.

Lol well thanks anyways, I

Lol well thanks anyways, I played it for the midterm, hope my teacher liked it...I personally thought it sounded pretty good, thanks for the help!

i can't wait to get better at

i can't wait to get better at this, i was just bumbling my way through the first time and was blown away by how it sounded.

Perfect tab !
