There’s a variety of different ways you can play this tune and it can go in a number of different directions. You can experiment with varying speeds, dynamics, palm muting, decorations and embellishments, etc. Watch the performance video with the goal of knowing the tune well enough to be able to roughly hum the melody. Having a feel for the melody will make learning the song and memorizing it even easier. You can also use this performance video as a practice tool to play along with once you get the song up to speed. Don’t forget to refer to the tab and charts for specific fingerings, chords, notes, etc.
