Notes:
The picking pattern is in 3's. Just think of counting 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, etc.
There will be 8 of these per measure. I suggest you practice this picking on
the correct strings without fretting any strings. Build up your speed, then
start adding the fretting.

The fingering on these chords can be tricky. Here is a video of Neko's
guitarist playing this song that **might** help you figure out the fingers.
